clip art of digital cameraUW-W will celebrate Earth Day on Thurs., Apr. 26, with the theme “We are All Connected by Rivers.” As part of the festivities, we (students, faculty, and community members) can submit digital photos for exhibition around campus. Photos can be landscapes, natural scenes, wildlife or community activities. The deadline for submissions is Monday, April 16 (4:30 p.m.). Read the details online.

Looking for some pointers on photography? Andersen Library has resources that may help with technique and inspiration! Search HALCat (Harold Andersen Library’s catalog) for books such as Field photography: Beginning and advanced techniques (3rd-floor Main Collection, TR721 .B55) and Over the rivers (3rd-floor OVERSIZE Collection, QE77 .C65 2008).

You can see some stunning river photos on National Geographic’s web site.

You can get some advice about how to photograph a river from Graham Turner, photographer for the UK Guardian. (My two favorite tips: “Do not drop your camera in the water.” and “Try not to fall in.”

So get out there and take some beautiful photos for Earth Day!
