Wildshots, April 19
The Rockbridge Camera Club is partnering with the Boxerwood Nature Center and Woodland Garden to sponsor WildShots, a unique photography event at Boxerwood. Participants will take nature photos at Boxerwood and then prepare selected photos for display and potential sale during a subsequent Boxerwood art show. This event is open to the general public, including members of the Rockbridge Camera Club.
The event will start on Sunday, April 19 at 4 pm in the Boxerwood Lodge with a presentation on the use of your camera for nature photography. Then participants will go into the garden to take photos for approximately two hours. Inexperienced photographers will be paired with a member of the Rockbridge Camera Club for assistance. Following the photo session in the garden, participants will meet in the Lodge for an instructional session on printing and mounting their photos.
Participants may then bring their mounted photographs for display and potential sale at the Boxerwood Art Show on Sunday, April 26. Rules for the Art Show are that all photographs must be taken at Boxerwood.
