Free nature photography lesson in Clermont County | News
OWENSVILLE, OH (FOX19) - Do you like to explore nature, and wish you could find a way to capture what you see, but struggle to get good photographs? The Clermont County Park District is having a free Basic Nature Photography class on Wednesday, August 15 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Pattison Park Lodge, located at 2228 SR 50 near Owensville. Beginning photographers of any age are invited to attend.
“The information covered in the class will be relevant to all types of photography, not just nature photography,” said Clermont Parks Chief Naturalist Keith Robinson. “The tips taught in class can help you get better pictures of your kids, pets, or any subject matter.”
Robinson said that some of the common mistakes we make when taking photographs are being too far away from the subject, and not being at the same eye level as your subject. “This happens a lot when taking pictures of kids, pets, or anything lower to the ground. It helps if you get down closer to the level of your subject.”
One tip Robinson has for beginning photographers is to remember the rule of thirds. “The rule of thirds is to place the main subject of your photo in either the left or right third of the frame, instead of directly in the center. This can make your photograph more interesting by giving it some depth.”
Registration is required; you can register by calling the Park District naturalist office at 876-9013. For more information about this or other Park District programs, visit the website www.clermontparks.org.
