Photo Class - Understanding Aperture

St. Louis Photo Authority®


Your camera has three controls to help you get the exposure you want and the look you want your photo to have. Aperture is one of those three controls. We'll show you how: • The lens you use controls the range of apertures available • How the aperture you choose affects what is in focus • The best aperture to use for shooting in low light • To get the most out of your current lenses. Bring your camera and lenses for some serious learning and a lot of fun!

Owl prowl with Mark Glenshaw the owl man!

Forest Park Visitor Center

Spring is in full swing and this WILL be another great day for an owl adventure in Forest Park with the friendly Mark Glenshaw (regardless of the weather)! Unusually entertaining and witty for a dedicated naturalist, Mark's interest in and enthusiasm for nature and owls continues to burn strong as we enter this 14th year of his documenting of this family of great horned owls. I first met him back in 2009 when I did my first Forest Park 365 project (forestpark365.com), and he has some great stories to tell of nocturnal adventures and owl behavior. Be sure to bring your camera and a telephoto lens as there will most likely be some great opportunity for capturing some really great images. Sign up soon, though, as space is very limited! Check out this article if you want to learn more about a really great guy and his appreciation of the wonders of nature! https://patch.com/missouri/stlouis/meet-owl-man-who-prowls-forest-park-night
