Williamsport, MD- Come out and join park volunteer Steve Dean at the Cushwa Basin Visitor Center in Williamsport on Saturday, October 15 from 9:00 AM-12:00 PM, for a discussion of canal photography and a short walk in the area. This discussion is oriented towards those who might want to exercise more control over their camera to enhance their canal photos. While the automatic features that modern cameras have can perform wonders, there is much to be gained from trying the various exposure modes and capabilities that modern cameras have.
The group will start with a discussion and go on a short walk, starting at the Conococheague Aqueduct and then to Lock 44, and then back upstream to Culvert 129. Wear sturdy shoes and be prepared to take a short excursion off the canal towpath.
Plan on bringing your camera, whether it is a point and shoot or digital single-lens-reflex (DSLR), as well as any other accessories you may use, especially if you have a tripod. Let us know in advance what you are bringing so we know what capabilities your camera has.
Space is limited to the first 20 guests. If you would like to attend this free event, you must RSVP to Linzy French with your name and how many will be in your party. For more information or to RSVP, please contact Linzy at 301-714-2201 or e-mail us.
Due to the nature of camera equipment this event will be rescheduled in the event of rain. Contact Steve at email@example.com in the event of possible weather issues, to discuss your camera or for any other questions.
Parking can be found at the Cushwa Basin Visitor Center, located at 205 West Potomac Street, Williamsport, MD 21795.
