Views of Nature Photography

What Happened in 2017

- Bob was a guest speaker at the Pickens Technical College photography program on February 24th. The topic of his presentation was Urban Wildlife Photography. It was the kickoff to their latest project, urban wildlife for the State competition. He also picked his choices for best of show and an honorable mention image for their latest contest.

- March 18th, a basic digital photography class at The Gardens at Spring Creek in Fort Collins, CO.  The class was a lot of fun for the participants and hopefully they came away with a better understanding of camera creative controls and basic composition. Shooting out in the Garden and in the greenhouse with the students after the class was very enjoyable.

-On April 21st Bob returned to Pickens Technical College as one of the three judges for the State competition. The students, both high school and post secondary, submitted a variety of images including ones on the theme of urban wildlife. Many of these young people are very talented and judging was challenging.
