Don’t miss out on a great photography class at Tryon Creek State Natural Area!  Jason Waicunas of Outdoor Viewfinder will be teaching the art of landscape photography, with an emphasis on exposure and composition.  You will “focus on” the beautiful surrounding landscape, with opportunities to photograph the wide range of trees, plants, wildlife, and water features that the park has to offer.  Whether you barely know how to use your camera or are a seasoned pro stuck in a creative rut, Jason will help get you on the way to making better photographs!
