Beginning Nature Photography Course
June 5 @ 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 10am until 11:30am, with the exception of July 4th weekend. Initial
meetings will occur at the Schuylerville Public Library or 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 Canal 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).
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.
