Radnor Lake Photography Workshop

Fri., September 1-Sat., September 2


The Art of Seeing – join Robin Conover for an interactive, hands-on photography class in conjunction with Radnor Lake and Tennessee State Parks. Robin will share the techniques and locations she has studied for more than 34 years of photographing the people and places of Tennessee with The Tennessee Magazine. She will also share her insights and knowledge of how she ‘sees’ images with class members as you walk the park, photographing the lake, birds and other wildlife. Class may include a tour of the Barbara J. Mapp Aviary Center for a unique photograph opportunity with our captive birds of prey.

The class will be a mix of technical knowledge and artistic concepts that will help enhance your ability to see the natural world around you and capture your vision in a photograph.

Classes will begin with a two-hour evening lecture, followed the next morning by a sunrise, hands-on photography workshop. The hands-on session will be approximately 3-4 hours.

For an additional fee; Robin will critique five of your images photographed during the workshop.
