Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve


This two-part class for naturalists and nature-lovers looks at photography as a tool for learning and

communicating about the world of plants. Session 1 will focus on shooting, including time spent out on

the trails (bring digital camera, macro and landscape lenses, and tripod). Session 2 will cover image

handling and collection management, including color correction, metadata, and web posting. Creating a

meaningful body of work will be emphasized. Participants should be familiar with the basic operation of

their cameras. Home computer with internet access recommended. Tom Potterfield is a volunteer

naturalist and photographer at Bowman’s Hill and Longwood Gardens. He has a masters degree from

the Annenberg School of Communication at the University of Pennsylvania and spent over 20 years

making television documentaries.

This program takes place on two Tuesdays, May 3 and May 10, 2016 from 1:00 – 4:00pm. The program

fee for Preserve Members is $45. The fee for non-members is $50. Call to register: (215) 862-2924.
