Conservation Photography Workshop
Photography can be a powerful tool to advance conservation objectives, as people near and far are exposed to the wonders of the natural world. Bring your digital SLR camera to this workshop with Nature Photographer Becky Lewis, who will help get you started on your journey as a nature photographer. She will talk basics about equipment and then discuss composition and framing, to optimize your nature and wildlife photos. A portion of the class will be hands-on, to help you get started using your camera. Weather permitting, the class will go outside into the Rushton Woods Preserve to see what you can capture.
Instructor: Becky Lewis is a science educator, wildlife photographer and adventurer. She has spent the last ten years concentrating on her wildlife photography, to share her passion for wildlife and nature with others and advance conservation through photography. Becky has participated in juried art shows and has won best-in-show in a number of venues. In addition, she has headlined three solo shows in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Open to participants over 16 years of age.
Getting to the Rushton Conservation Center:
The Rushton Conservation Center is located at Rushton Woods Preserve. Because the building is new, the address (915 Delchester Road, Newtown Square) may not be correctly recognized by your GPS or Waze. Alternatively, you can use Rushton Woods Preserve as a landmark or the address of Rushton Farm (911 Delchester Road, Newtown Square). The entrance to the Rushton Conservation Center is located approximately 100 yards south of the Rushton Farm entrance and is marked by lighted bollards. Event signage will be posted.
Events may be cancelled or rescheduled due to inclement weather or low registration. In that case, we will make every effort to update our website, contact registrants, and reschedule if possible.
