Upcoming Nature Photography Events at the National Fish and Wildlife Conservation Center

Posted by  | January 25, 2013  at 2:08 PM  

The last time I tried my hand at "nature photography" I ended up on my backside sliding down a rather steep embankment straight into a creek, or in this case I'm pretty sure it was a crick. Don't worry though, I went down holding my camera above my head to keep it out of harms way. While my Nikon came out unscathed, I wish I could same the same for my dignity; I'm pretty sure I saw some squirrels pointing and laughing.

My antics aside, for those of you looking to brave the great outdoors for some wild, wonderful shots, the Potomac Valley Nature Photographers (PVNP) will be hosting some great events over the next couple months. The first event will be a presentation and the second a hands-on workshop. Information on both events is outlined below and there are more details on both after the break.

Remember: if (when) you fall to hold your camera high and if you thought squirrels were snarky, just keep in mind those rascally rabbits are totally ruthless ;)
