Join Alex Horn, SCCF’s Education & Volunteer Coordinator and an accomplished photographer, for a hands-on learning experience on how to create compelling and eye-catching photographs on Feb. 11 from 9-10:30am at SCCF’s Bailey Homestead Preserve.
“Immersing the public in nature builds such a strong bond and appreciation for the world around us. And looking at the world through a camera lens creates a completely new perspective of the wildlife and ecosystems we share this island with,” said Horn.
Attendees will begin the workshop with a tutorial on the basics of photography, its application to environmental and wildlife photography, and the best practices for photographing certain species on the islands. The second half of the workshop will explore the Bailey Homestead to put these new tools to use.
“The Bailey Homestead is the perfect spot for an introduction to using your camera. From macro photos of native flowers to photos of resident species, the preserve offers many opportunities to try new skills,” Horn added.
All skill levels are welcome and all types of cameras may be used, including mobile phone cameras. RSVP through Eventbrite/SCCF; $15 SCCF members/$20 non-members. Please call SCCF’s Native Landscapes & Garden Center at 239-472-1932 with questions.
