Summer 2019 Nature Photography Classes and Workshops by Jim Crotty and the Centerville-Washington Township Park District

I am happy to announce that I will be presenting a new series of outdoor photography classes and workshops this summer in partnership with the Centerville-Washington Township Park District in two of their parks, south of Dayton, Ohio. Programs will be presented at both Bill Yeck Park and Grant Park, both located in Centerville. These areas are beautiful locations for learning and practicing outdoor nature and landscape photography, offering a variety of habitats including woodland trails, creeks, and tall grass meadows.

I will be leading each class through the basics of exposure and best camera settings as well as developing artistic vision for natural compositions. Subjects will range from insects, wildlife, plants, flowers, and the wider landscapes and skyscapes that make summer in Ohio so beautiful.

There are both weekday and weekend classes available. The dates, locations, web page with details are as follows for each class. Prices are listed on each page:

Registration is now open via the links listed above, however, students will need to create an account first @ https://cwpd.recdesk.com/CommunityHome.

Students are encouraged to bring an entry level DSLR camera with changeable lenses or a point and shoot camera with manual exposure capabilities. Each class will include time within the classroom reviewing the basics for effective digital image editing.

I am very much looking forward to bringing my love for nature and landscape photography, as well as for teaching photography, to the Centerville-Washington Township Park District. I have been actively presenting and teaching photography workshops in Ohio since 2009.

For questions and help registering contact the main office for the Park District @ (937) 433-5155.
