REGISTER NOW FOR NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY CAMPThe Potomac Valley Audubon Society is now accepting applications for its innovative nature photography day camp for area high school students.
Now in its sixth year, the camp will be held June 25-29 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day. It will include four days of field and lab training on the Shepherd University campus and a one-day field trip to nearby natural areas.
Campers will have full access to computers and photo editing software in the computer lab at the University's Center for Contemporary Arts. They will also have the use of Nikon Digital SLR cameras that have been provided by Nikon, Inc.
Campers will not only learn about the fundamentals of digital nature photography and image editing from expert instructors, they will also have an opportunity to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of the natural world.
Enrollment is very limited, so campers receive very intensive, hands-on instruction.
The cost for the entire week is only $150.
Participating students must be entering grades 9, 10, 11 or 12 in the fall of 2012 (or be of equivalent age).
The camp will be led by Dr. Bruce F. Field, of Hagerstown, an experienced nature photographer. Members of PVAS's Potomac Valley Nature Photographers group will also be on hand throughout the week to help mentor and coach participants and will teach specialty topics.
