Beginning Nature Photography Course
June 12 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am EDTFree
The Schuylerville Public Library is the happy recipient of a Community Arts grant through Saratoga Arts. This summer, the Library will offer a free, six-part Beginning Nature Photography course for anyone age 16 & up. From June 5 through July 17, the class will meet
each Saturday from 10-11:30 AM, with the exception of July 4th weekend. Initial meeting(s) will occur virtually, with several classes outdoors for hands-on photography sessions at nearby Hudson Crossing Park. Any in-person meetings will be socially distanced, and participants will be required to wear masks.
Each student will receive a useful photography instructional book and learn from one of the best nature photographers in our area. Susan Meyer has been photographing nature for decades and just received first place in the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor Photo Contest in 2020. Susan will display examples of her work and review topics like composition, lighting, and more.
The instructor will work with any type of camera or smartphone that participants own and provide useful tips on dealing with whatever type of device you bring to class. Those who complete the program will be invited to frame one of their photographs for a temporary art
exhibit at the Schuylerville Public Library later in the summer. Registration will open on May 1st and may be done online (https://bit.ly/libeventcal) or by phone (518-695-6641). UPDATE: Both the class and the waiting list are full.
Saratoga Arts made this program possible with a Community Arts Grant funded by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
