A Walk in Nature
Cathy McCurrey

We are so fortunate to be in a place that is surrounded by an abundance of nature.  Take a walk this weekend; you might even consider taking a new hike and discover new things.  Don't think too much when taking photos.  Use your camera phone or the latest in digital cameras.  You can add filters or whatever wonderful apps are out there.

Take pictures of nature
Experiment with different angles, capturing a variety of textures, form, perspectives and scale.
Edit your pictures.  Which ones are the most visually dynamic and why?  What images are you drawn to and why?
Print each  of your most interesting images in color  on 8.5 x 11.This can  be done in the  library  on ordinary  paper,  don't print on photo  paper or  inkjet printers.

Printed  photos will be presented at the beginning of class on Monday.  No excuses, plann ahead aandsolve problems    that might arise, ie. laser printer issues, paper  issues, camera issues.
If you do not have access to a camera the department can provide one for the weekend. Ask  me before class ends--  projects.

Some ideas- photograph close-ups of details, animals, document different flowers or rocks.
