Event Type Walk/Hike Description There is incredible beauty in nature, from magnificent birds, flowers and landscapes to the tiniest insects. Join us for this workshop led by Denise Hackert-Stoner of Naturelogues. Suitable for all levels of photographers with a variety of equipment, this program covers the basic elements of nature photography including light, composition, and focus. We will discuss how these elements apply to close-ups, landscapes, and wildlife photography. Also included will be a discussion of simple editing, and where to photograph nature in upstate NY. There will be a two-hour workshop session followed by a one-hour hike around the Pine Bush so that we can practice our skills. If you have a camera, from a cellphone camera to a digital SLR, we encourage you to bring it! Sponsoring Organization Albany Pine Bush Preserve Commission
