This month’s free event was a Nature Photography Workshop at Franklin Canyon, which is a little nature preserve snugged away in the middle of Beverly Hills that I had no idea existed. The local canyon parks have various hikes and workshops every month, and they always catch my eye as I scan EyeSpyLA for free events.
It was a pretty casual arrangement. Basically one of the park’s volunteer naturalists led the group on a trail and gave tips here and there. She also worked with people individually to help them learn how to use their cameras. I was able to finally get some guidance on taking distant shots and landscapes to some success, but man I’m starting to crave a zoom lens!
Anyway, it was super fun and I’m really glad I went. Here are the results from the day:
With a few favorites:
Anyone recognize this place?
Looking ahead to March, I most definitely want to return to the Annual Festival of the Kite. Still, I’ll keep an eye out for any other interesting events that show up.
