Posted by on Oct 12, 2010

FRANKFORT, Ky. – Join wildlife photographer Kim Graham for a beginner-level photography class designed for nature enthusiasts at the Salato Wildlife Education Center from 1 – 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23. You do not need expensive equipment for this workshop; however, a working knowledge of your camera is required. Digital cameras will work great for this program.  Bring along a tripod if you have one and of course a love for the outdoors.

You will receive instruction about equipment and some basic photography techniques to help you build your skill level. All participants will receive an 8X10 of their favorite shot. Graham will also cover the ethics of nature photography and tips for creating a great outdoor photograph. During a guided walk outside the Salato Center, you will have a hands-on opportunity to photograph all the scenic beauty that nature offers in autumn. The cost of this program is $35 with registration required.

The Salato Center has a variety of native animals for the public to see, including a black bear, an eagle, bobcats, elk, deer, bison, snakes and fish. The center has numerous indoor exhibits and miles of hiking trails open to the public. Fishing is available at two lakes. While some programs may require a registration fee, general admission to the Salato Center is free.
