10:00 am – 1:00 pm – Nature Photography Workshop for Adults – Beginner Level, at Josephine Sculpture Park, 3355 Lawrenceburg Rd (3/4 Mile South of Capital Bowl), Frankfort

This workshop consists of 3 sessions:

July 23: 10 am – 1 pm
Aug. 6: 6 am  – 9 am
Aug. 20: 7 pm – 10 pm

*Please note these sessions meet at different times of day to explore a variety of light conditions including dawn, mid-day and dusk.

This is a beginner level workshop for ages 16 and up.

Jump-start your inspiration by immersing yourself in nature with your camera and an objective. Learn to look more closely at the wonders of the natural world and gain technical skills in expressing the delights you find. Light and shadows, patterns in nature, and exploration of colors will be the topics of these three workshops.
Camera basics and one-on-one troubleshooting will be included each time. Each class is scheduled to explore available light at different times of day. This beginner level workshop assumes you have not explored any settings on a camera beyond automatic, and will introduce you to shutter speed, aperture, and other variables you can control.

Supplies

Participants may use their own digital camera or reserve one. A digital SLR, point-and-shoot or other device that allows adjustment of exposure settings is required. Contact Karen at klanierphoto@gmail.com to reserve a Canon Powershot A800 digital point-and-shoot.

Bring snacks and water, and dress for walking in grassy areas. Check the weather forecast and be prepared to be photographing outdoors (sun protection, rain gear, etc.).

Instructor

Karen Lanier is a naturalist, photographer, author, and environmental educator who earned a unique degree in Environmental Documentation, the fusion of conservation studies and documentary storytelling. She has led youth photography classes and workshops since 2011, and prefers to see the world through a child’s eye. She reminds adults to playfully explore the outdoors with child-like curiosity and wonder.

This workshop is free and is supported by The Kentucky Foundation for Women. Donations are graciously accepted.
