Digital Nature Photography Camp

Digital Nature Photography CampPVAS holds a one-week digital nature photography camp for ten high school students each summer. Participants learn the fundamentals of digital nature photography and image editing. Using Nikon digital cameras that PVAS provides, high school students capture images of nature, wildlife, and natural resources in the areas in and around Shepherdstown, WV.  (Some images taken by past campers are posted below.)

The program takes advantage of the natural and cultural heritage of the Shepherdstown area by visiting and photographing areas such as the C&O Canal, Town Run, the riverfront in Shepherdstown, the Potomac River, and other sites in and around the area.

The experience is balanced with technical computer skills by having students learn how to manage and edit their images using a computer lab with free downloadable software. Each student is sent home with all of the images he/she captured over the week.

The 2016 camp will be held at Shepherd University's Center for Contemporary Arts June 20-24. More information and a registration link is here
