Head to the Trails with your Camera to Capture Spring’s Beauty

Head to the Trails with your Camera to Capture Spring’s Beauty

Spring is the perfect time to dust off your camera and head outside to capture images of budding trees, wildflowers and baby animals. Let the April issue of the Snapshots e-newsletter inspire you with photos from Fairfax County parks.

If you want to experiment a little with photo processing, Snapshot offers tips on how to use your color camera to capture the best black-and-white images. Get advice from the Park Authority’s veteran photographer. You’ll also find some suggestions for working on your still life photo skills.  

For young shutterbugs, find summer camps that focus on photo basics and developing nature photography skills. For professional photographers, get an update on current commercial licensing.

To become a Snapshots subscriber, be sure to hit the subscribe button at the bottom of the newsletter so you don’t miss out on future issues. Find it here.
