This weekend workshop is tailored for the beginner that has used a camera at least a few times, but it is also useful for more experienced shooters.  While we will be focusing on 35 mm format (film and digital) equipment and techniques, point-and-shoot photographers are also encouraged to participate. We will cover all aspects of nature photography with classroom and outdoor field sessions.  Topics of discussion will include light, composition, equipment, workflow, and how to find images. 

This course is co-sponsored by Cacapon State Park and Potomac Valley Audubon Society.  The course will be taught by Wil and Donna Hershberger who are both accomplished nature photographers.

The weekend will begin on Friday night (6:30-9:00 p.m.), continue on Saturday (6:30 a.m.-8:30 p.m.), and conclude on Sunday (6:30 a.m.-Noon).  Sessions will be held at Cacapon State Park, outside Berkeley Springs WV.

Everyone should bring a camera to the course and lenses, tripod and flash (if you have them).
