Oh boy! Haven't we earned spring this year!

Clean your equipment. Find your hat and tennies. Buy new sunscreen. Get out your calendar and make some plans. Let's go!

But first...

Are your photography skills rusty after that long winter? Don't go through another summer frustrated with your camera. Join a Four Rivers Photo Workshop for a Saturday morning workshop and outdoor practice session in downtown Annapolis, Maryland. It's fun. It's stress-free. You'll be amazed at what you learn in four short hours. The image below was taken as a demonstration during a class exercise. We will show you how.

Now back to shooting tips...

Here are some suggestions to get you out of the house and into the sunshine with your camera. This is just a small sample of what's available now that winter is on its way out.

Places to commune with... all things growing, thriving and not frozen.

Laurie grew up in the Annapolis area enjoying all that its rivers, woods, historic setting and strong community provide. After earning undergraduate and graduate degrees in Biology, she returned home to the banks of the Severn River. An early career as a biologist for The Johns Hopkins University soon transitioned to positions in the emerging field of Information Technology. Laurie designed and taught countless computer application courses and developed strong programming, data analysis and management skills. Through it all, Laurie captured her love of nature, landscape and animal portraiture - especially birds in photography. Her photographs are featured in Field Guide on Insects of the Cloud Forest, author Paul Beck, Illustrator Ryan Hobson; the Museum of Nature & Science in Dallas, TX; the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's website All About Birds; and the travel website Schmap.com. Her awards include Best in Show and several category prizes in the 2011 Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge, Friends of the 500th Annual Annual Competition; Honorable Mention in the Nature Conservancy's 5th Annual Photography contest and several exhibition awards from the Digital Photography Club of Annapolis.
