Outdoor Images and Moviemaking: Summer Camp Style!

Getting up close and capturing images of nature(like this Black Ratsnake) is what this summer camp is all about! Photo by Derek Stoner, June 13, 2011.

To kick of another great season of summer camps offered through the Delaware Nature Society, we held a session of the popular “Outdoor Images and Moviemaking” camp.  A talented group of 11-15 year-olds improved their photography skills and discovered a wide variety of native flora and fauna during a wonderful week in the field.

The campers documented the diverse sights and sounds with digital cameras and a digital video recorder as we visited local preserves.  They observed colorful wildflowers at Coverdale Farm Preserve, a pool full of frogs and tadpoles at Bucktoe Creek Preserve, swarms of herons and egrets at Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge, and the aerial antics of hummingbirds at the Ashland Nature Center.

You are invited to view the compilation of the best photos and video clips of a week spent outdoors.  I’d like to congratulate the campers — Amber, Jessie, Savannah, Ben, Caroline, Josh, James, Melissa, Katie, and Yelena– for making such outstanding images and bringing creative skills to the photography process.  Enjoy their show!
