We will carpool, when necessary. These hikes have variable terrain so they're not suitable for those with mobility issues. Our 6-9 km. hikes may often go over 3 hours. Please no dogs! TED GRAINGER

Take Your Camera For A Walk

CVEC-5550

This off-campus course is intended for those who like to take their cameras on hikes and walks. Cameras should be adjustable, and participants should be familiar with how to set shutter speed, aperture, and ISO settings on their cameras. Point-and-shoot and phone cameras will work, but not all techniques can be used with these types of camera. While exploring a different location each week, photographic techniques and composition will be presented. Participants should dress for the weather, for walking, and will have to drive to each location. NORM MATHEW
