Teens interested in photography can sign up for the Potomac Valley Audubon Society’s innovative nature photography day camp.

Now in its sixth year, the camp will be held June 25-29 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. It will include four days of field and lab training on the Shepherd University campus and a one-day field trip to nearby natural areas.

Campers will have full access to computers and photo editing software in the computer lab at the University’s Center for Contemporary Arts. They will also have the use of Nikon Digital SLR cameras that have been provided by Nikon.

Campers will not only learn about the fundamentals of digital nature photography and image editing from expert instructors, they also will have an opportunity to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of the natural world.

Organizers say enrollment is limited to allow campers to receive intensive, hands-on instruction.

Participating students must be entering grades 9, 10, 11 or 12 in the fall. The cost for the entire week is $150.

The camp will be led by Bruce F. Field, an experienced nature photographer from Hagerstown, Md.,. Members of PVAS’s Potomac Valley Nature Photographers group will be on hand throughout the week to help mentor and coach participants and will teach specialty topics.
