Still Time to Register for Nature Photography Workshop


MANSFIELD, Ohio — There’s still time to register for Capturing Nature’s Wonders, an Oct. 17 photography workshop by Jim Doty Jr. at the Mansfield campus of The Ohio State University.

Registration for the event is open through Monday, Oct. 12, said Kathy Smith, coordinator of the event’s sponsor, the Ohio Woodland Stewards Program. The program is part of Ohio State’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.

The workshop will focus on advanced digital nature photography, Smith said. It will have sessions, for example, on wildlife, flowers, night skies and landscapes plus metering, depth of field, time exposures and natural light.

He is the author of Digital Photography Exposure for Dummies. His work has been published in Hunt’s Guide to the Upper Peninsula and by Ohio State’s Stone Lab, the Ohio Sea Grant program, KOA Campgrounds and the National Wildlife Federation, among others.
