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.

Photograph the starry night sky with your DSLR camera & lenses you currently own. Curt Weinhold, a PA Wilds Juried Artisan, teaches you to photograph constellations & the Milky Way. Foreground material, as trees or buildings may also add to the composition. Samples of work online: http://pbase.com/cwphoto Some photo gear essential to this would include a digital camera which allows removable lenses (DSLR) and a tripod. Strongly recommend a fully charged camera battery and a spare battery if available and a memory card. Optionally, you can bring a laptop with image editing software. The workshop will include a short review of images near the conclusion. This workshop is NOT for those wishing to photograph through a telescope. Clear nights are cool so bring a jacket. The program will be cancelled in the event of rain or overcast skies. Payment will be due upon arrival at the program by check or cash only. Registration Required - Register by Thursday August 17th at 3pm. Class size is limited to only 10 seats. Questions? cwphoto@zitomedia.net
