Veteran photographer Dave Cooney is returning to the Audubon Center and Sanctuary from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday to offer an intermediate class in point-and-snap nature photography.
Cooney will begin the session indoors, discussing photography concepts such as composition, depth of field and exposure. He will then take the group outside and put the concepts to the test on the Audubon grounds. A naturalist will be on hand to share information and answer questions about the flora and fauna that participants will be photographing.
A serious, self-taught photographer for more than 30 years, Cooney enjoys teaching others. His main interests are nature and aviation photography. He has contributed extensively to Audubon's library of nature images and is the photographer for Audubon's annual Secret Gardens Tour.
