Day 1, Saturday 9:30 AM to 2:00 PM with a half hour lunch break at noon.
Day 2, Sunday 6:00 AM to 10:00 AM (Early Start Optional)

Seven Ponds Member and internationally published photographer David Stimac will teach you how to create spectacular photographs of landscapes, plants, and animals. Whether you own a camera or not, are a novice or advanced hobbyist, this weekend offers something for everyone.

You will learn how to select the right camera bodies, lenses, filters, tripods, etc., to best accomplish your photographic goals. You will also gain a firm knowledge of all of the technical aspects of photography, including techniques for creating razor sharp images, understanding your camera’s light meter, histogram, file formats, and how to control exposure. Dave will also use his own photography to illustrate an in-depth discussion of the various aspects of composition that separate a good photograph from a great one. You will also learn how one’s passion for the subject matter is essential in making the best photographs.

Day 2 will be spent on a morning photo shoot on the Center’s grounds. During this time of year many of the flowers on the prairie will be at peak bloom, attracting dragonflies, butterflies, spiders – all providing lots of photo opportunities.

Participants who will benefit the most from this program should already own or are seriously planning to purchase a digital or film SLR camera system. Participants who do not already own a system will have the opportunity to work with Dave using his equipment to help make informed decisions.

Fee: $60.00 ($50.00 members) Please call Seven Ponds Nature Center to register.
