Nature Photography

Nature photography refers to a wide range of photography taken outdoors and of natural elements such as landscapes, wildlife, plants, and close-ups of natural scenes and textures. Nature photography tends to put a stronger emphasis on the aesthetic value of the photo than other photography genres, such as photojournalism and documentary photography. Find a program near you where you can learn the skill and develop the art of taking just the right photo of a wildflower, deer or colorful rock.  Then use what you learned and go out on your own! 

Activity Description

Assuming that nature photography will include walking for at least 30 minutes, one can assume that walking and taking photographs burns 100 calories.
