This interactive workshop will cover ways you can use your camera—whether it’s a phone, pocket camera or DSLR—to learn more about nature. Learn how to get sharp, usable images and where you can get help identifying the species you’ve taken photos of.
Did you know that most phones, and many cameras, can record sounds and that can help you identify birds and other nature sounds?
Bring whichever camera you have. This workshop will involve hands-on experience and minimal walking.
Don Boucher will lead this workshop. Don’s professional life involves photography and video editing. He is a regular Greenbelt volunteer and part of the Neighborhood Naturalist program. He has extensive experience collecting images, video, and sounds as a tool to learn about local nature.
