Budding photographers are invited to attend the annual Nature Photography Workshop on Saturday, May 7, at Woodlands Nature Station in Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area.

Distinguished regional nature photographer, Denise Boaz, and Murray State’s Graphic Communications faculty member, Gross Magee will lead the workshop from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. During this 4-hour workshop, Boaz and Magee will explain exposure and composition, then give participants an opportunity to take photos in the field to develop their photography skills.

Magee will also share tips and advice about using digital cameras. Participants will receive an instructional book to take home. The workshop is limited to 20 participants to ensure more personal instruction.

“We look forward to this workshop each year and are very excited to have Denise Boaz and Gross Magee back again,” said LBL interpreter Carrie Szwed. “Learning how to better use your camera for nature photography is a great way to appreciate LBL’s natural beauty.”

The $30 workshop fee covers the cost of the program, instructional book on photography, and admission to the Nature Station. Participants should bring their camera (35mm SLR or digital), several rolls of film, lunch and drinks, and dress appropriately for the weather. Pre-registration and full deposits are required by calling 270-924-2020.
