Nature Photography

  • This event has passed.

Dramatic photos of wildlife seen in the garden are a joy to behold and an inspiration to all. Through lecture and onsite practice, professional photographer David Greaves presents insights on observing nature, using natural light to its best advantage, telling stories through photos, using varying angles, and more tips to further develop your skills in the art of capturing nature photography techniques. Students should bring a smartphone or camera to practice the techniques learned. If you have a tripod and are interested in learning how to better utilize it, bring it along. Dress for the weather.

This program takes place in person at Mt. Cuba Center on Saturday, May 20, 2023.
