Just a few spots are left in Capturing Nature’s Wonders, an Oct. 18 outdoor photography workshop taught by Jim Doty Jr., author of Digital Photography Exposure for Dummies, at Ohio State University’s Mansfield campus.
Participants “will learn the simple steps that make the difference between ordinary snapshots and extraordinary photos,” said Kathy Smith, head of Ohio State University Extension’s Ohio Woodland Stewards Program, the workshop’s sponsor. OSU Extension is the statewide outreach arm of Ohio State’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.
Registration for the workshop, which is $90 and includes lunch and dinner, can be made online atgo.osu.edu/qen. Details on the workshop, including its camera, equipment and book requirements, are at go.osu.edu/qej. The workshop is limited to just 12 participants.
The program offers both classroom instruction and practice in the field, Smith said. Topics will include metering, depth of field, reading and working with light, timed exposures, landscapes, close-ups, wildlife photography, flower images, and night and low-light shooting.
Doty has taught photography for 18 years, including at Ohio State’s Stone Laboratory on Lake Erie, Kalamazoo Institute of Arts in Michigan and Graceland University in Iowa. Details on his background and examples of his work are at his website, jimdoty.com.
The workshop goes from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. followed by a field trip from 6:30-8:30 PM. Ohio State’s Mansfield campus is at 1760 University Drive.
