Photography Workshops

Thu, April 11, 2013

A “Kids Camera Safari (KCS)” kicks off an initiative by LMG that encourages photographers of all ages to experience the garden through the lens. The KCS is scheduled for April 20, 2013, from 9 a.m. to noon with a rain date of Sunday, April 21 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

According to LMG website …

This workshop is designed to help children learn how to compose interesting and unique photographs. Participants must be between 8 and 12 years old and be able to operate a simple point and shoot camera set on automatic. Other photographic devices like a phone or a tablet can also be used. Class size will be limited to 30.

Children will be divided into small groups with an experienced photographer and a naturalist leading each group. The cost to members is $25 for each child and $30 for non-members. Click below to register online or download a registration form. Registration forms can also be requested by calling (217)-529-1111. Completed forms, together with payment, should be sent to Lincoln Memorial Garden, 2301 East Lake Drive, Springfield, IL 62712-8909.

Other workshops scheduled in the series include “Getting the Most Out of Your Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) Camera” on Saturday, June 1, “The Art of Macro Photography” on Saturday, August 3, and “Photographing those Elusive Birds” on Saturday, September 28. Registration for the DSLR program will be available on the LMG web site by May 1.

I will be one of the photographers leading a group of youngsters on April 20th and will also be one of the instructors for the September program on “Photographing those Elusive Birds”. If you are interested in advancing your photography skills and would like to experience the natural wonders of Lincoln Memorial Garden sign up for one of our classes. Hopefully we will be able to capture images like those included in this post. All of these bird photos were taken at the Garden.
