Basic Digital Nature Photography in the Field

Basic Digital Nature Photography in the Field
Sat, July 18 and 25, 2015 8:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.    
Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary, 127 Combs Rd., Easthampton 
Instructor:  photojournalist Robert Floyd 
Members:
Adult $95
Nonmembers:
Adult $115.00       

Get an overview of everything you need to know about digital nature photography in two hands-on sessions.  While strolling through the many environments of Arcadia and taking photographs, the instructor explores the camera’s various controls and menu selections and how to make best use of the camera’s features, such as viewfinders, lenses, and settings.  The basic approach is “how we use that control now.”  An intensive assignment is offered for the second class, and students are invited to email the instructor with questions during the week.

Please bring your camera and manual to both classes.

Registration is required.  Call 413-584-3009 to register by phone.
