Friends of Princeton Open Space invites you to join us at the first workshop in our ongoing series entitled Capturing the Colors of Nature: Observing, Analyzing, Recording, and Extracting Color from the Natural World.

Join nature photographer Linda Park on a walking tour of the Mountain Lakes Preserve. This 90-minute walk and workshop will explore natural light photography and the secrets for capturing the beauty of nature in fall. The workshop will begin at the Mountain Lakes House where Linda will show some of her fall photographs of the Preserve as examples of how to use natural light, frame a photograph, and find the right vantage point. She will then guide us on a photography walk around the lake — stopping to discuss different viewpoints and how to see the photo before you take the shot. Linda will show us some of her favorite secret photo spots and provide a handout of other prime fall photo spots in the Preserve.

The workshop will wrap up at the Mountain Lakes House where Linda will lead a discussion on optimal times of the day and year for photographing the Mountain Lakes Preserve. And she will answer questions and ideas that result from the walk.

Participants are encouraged to bring a camera or iPhone to take shots on the walk. Sturdy footwear and rain gear (if needed) are required as we will be walking off the trail in some spots.
LINDA PARK is a Princeton-based nature and landscape photographer. A Rutgers Master Gardener, Linda's work combines her passion for gardening and photography. You can see her work at lindaparkphotography.com.
