About This Class

Do you want to get started with nature photography but don't know where to start?  Or maybe you have done some landscape photography but want to know more about how to capture the beautiful macros that you see on Instagram.  Plants are a great way to get started.  They are plentiful, have great details, and don't run away while you are photographing them.  This class will help you understand the equipment needed, finding good plants to photograph, lighting, and composition.

What you need: 

  • A camera (can be a smartphone)
  • A plant
  • Willingness to take a chance and have some fun

I am an environmental educator with a passion for crafting and photography. I have worked as an educator with a state park since 2006 and love introducing people to the outdoors and helping them to realize the beauty of the world around us. As you might guess, when it comes to photography, nature photography is my favorite and I particularly enjoy macro work. My crafting pursuits include basket weaving, chain mail jewelry, and making homemade bath and body products.
