I Spy with My Camera Eye is a very hands-on, experience-based camp that weaves together nature and art. We will inspire you to be another "visual" ambassador in the watershed - sharing your experiences with friends and family to raise their regard and care for the watershed. Following a brief review of camera equipment and safety, campers will talk about how to move from 'snapshots' to 'photographs' with 5 guaranteed tips to improve your photography. (Hint: It's not about the camera!) To warm up your "vision" and perception, campers will go into the natural areas surrounding the Musconetcong River for a "Universe at Your Feet" exercise where observations of the micro-universe will be made using all 5 senses. A substantial part of the camp will be the interactive Watershed Photo Scavenger Hunt. Campers will have a morning list and an afternoon list of photos to take that will ask you to apply the principles you've learned to improve your nature photography. Each hunt is followed by a group critique and discussion. Each camper will have 1 photo selected that will be used as an MWA Facebook cover photo in the next year.
