Photographing Nature for Beginners - February 2013
Wednesday, February 13, 2013 from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM (EST)
CREW volunteer & photographer Linda Jacobson leads this 3-hour beginner photography walk at the CREW Marsh Hiking Trails.
In this informal strolling class we’ll take a walk through the watershed looking for amazing things to experience and image with our DSLR, Point and Shoot or iPhone/Pod cameras.
Experience and see how texture, lighting, shadow and composition can make for a compelling image. Also discussed will be photo finishing, storage, online image resources for storage and display (galleries.)
This is meant to be a relaxing, no-pressure class held out in a dynamic and variable location - on the CREW trails! So anything can happen!

When & Where
CREW Land & Water Trust
The CREW Land & Water Trust was established in 1989 as a nonprofit organization to coordinate the land acquisition, land management, and public use of the 60,000-acre Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed. We work closely with our partners, the South Florida Water Management District and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to ensure the protection of the watershed. This watershed, the largest intact watershed in south Florida, straddles Lee and Collier Counties and provides aquifer recharge, natural flood protection, water purification, preservation of wildlife habitat, and public recreation. CREW's majestic 5,000-acre marsh is the headwaters for the entire watershed.
