R • A• W | Photography Hikes

Our early morning Nature Photography Hikes are the best time to photograph the morning dew that reflects all of nature colors and can brings opportunities to take some amazing macro shots. Butterflies and other insects are just waking up and this presents the best chance to photograph them, while the birds are spreading their wings and the Sun is rising through the trees giving you the ability to capture those silhouette photos. These photography hikes are for those that wish to learn more about nature photography as well as learning creative ways to photograph nature.

We are starting June 1st for the kick off of Outdoors Month and another Photography hike for National Nature Photography Day on June 15th.

June Outdoors Month Kick off

Photographers of all levels… this is the perfect day to get outdoors and rediscover how amazing nature can be. Kick June Outdoors month with a different view of nature! Bring your camera and make this day a photography challenge. Instead of using a lens you are comfortable with… use a different lens or a different camera… it could be a different model, a point and shoot or even your phone! Challenge yourself by only shooting in monochrome or only photography leaves. Have fun and see how you can view nature differently.

We will be hiking the Nature Center Loop (1.8 miles) and cut across the prairie to the cypress boardwalk for photographers to take amazing landscape photos of May’s Prairie.

Bring water, snacks and any other necessary items you need. Please wear sturdy shoes.

Starting the early morning off at 7:30am we will hike along the Longleaf loop (1.2 miles) at Big Pine Tract. Those that would like to meet up later at 10:30am to hike the Nature Center Loop (1.8 miles) and cut across the prairie to the cypress boardwalk for photographers to take amazing landscape photos of May’s Prairie.  Photographers may have a chance to photographer birds such as sand hill cranes, ibis and herons flying across the basin.
