Photography for Nature Lovers

Join the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program for a free workshop on photography and invasive species. The event is being held as part of New York’s Invasive Species Awareness Week.

This webinar is for anyone who is looking to get into or increase their existing knowledge of photography. The material is excellent for beginners who want to gain a deeper understanding of how to use manual settings and compose better images, and it will also provide a detailed overview of how to look for, photograph, and report invasive species.

“Photography for Nature Lovers” attendees will learn the following:

  • Photography basics, including how to understand f-stop, ISO, and shutter speed
  • Composing an image using concepts like the Rule of Thirds and the Fibonacci spiral
  • Tips on using photography to tell a story
  • How to photograph a species for identification purposes
  • How to identify some common invasive species
  • How to use iMapInvasives, New York’s invasive species database, to report invasive species
