Photographers are keenly aware of light, dark, angles and space. They, quite literally, view the salt marsh through a different lens. We want you to see what photographers see! Join UGA Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant educators and our digital media assistant and resident photographer, Shanon Wise, on a guided walk along the Jay Wolf Nature Trail at the UGA Aquarium. Wise has a bachelor’s degree in photography and integrated media from Ohio University. She will provide you with photography tips and share some techniques for shooting coastal wildlife and scenery found along the trail.
What to bring:
- Any type of camera (including your phone)
- Hiking shoes you do not mind getting dirty
The marsh walk will take place on Thursday, March 2 from 5 – 7 p.m. This is the first program offered as part of the 3-part Finding Meaning in the Marsh series. More information is provided below.
Registration is required for the event and includes admission to the UGA Aquarium. This program is open to all ages, but the content is geared towards children ages 13 and up.
Online registration will close at 4 p.m. the day before the event. Tickets are nonrefundable.
