Bring a camera (DSLR, point-and-shoot or phone camera) to Oakland Nature Preserve located at 747 Machete Trail, Oakland this Saturday, July 19, at 11 a.m. and learn how to take expert-quality wildlife and outdoor pictures with professional photographer Mike George. To start off this unique Science Saturday, George will spend a short period in the classroom teaching camera basics, such as settings, and composition fundamentals such as framing and lighting. He will also talk about the value of photography as a scientific and research tool, as well as its ability to enhance the outdoor experience.
Participants will then head out on the trail to capture some images with personal coaching from George. Each participant who brings a camera will go home with photographs suitable for framing or study, he said. This program is free.
