Dayton is surrounded by natural beauty in every direction. It’s a great moment when a fraction of that beauty is caught on camera. But let’s be honest. It’s a skill that takes practice.
Experts at Fort Ancient are helping nature lovers tap into their inner photographer during a Nature Photography Walk happening on Saturday, Sept. 15. The two-hour event is included with regular admission and is free for members. Participants need to bring their own camera.
The basics of outdoor photography will be taught during a leisurely walk on Fort Ancient’s beautiful trails, where there will be instant opportunities to put new techniques and skills to use. Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalists will be with the group to help identify the plants and animals being photographed.
“The walk leaves the museum at 2:00 and lasts approximately 2 hours. Visitors should plan to be at the site and prepared to begin the hike at the start time. Participants are encouraged to dress for the weather and wear appropriate footwear,” according to a Fort Ancient press release.
