BBSR Course on Scientific Photography
Scientific Photography is an intensive introduction comprised of lectures, required reading, laboratory exercises, demonstrations and field assignments. This two-week course exposes students to the use of photography as a scientific tool. Photography is frequently used to communicate scientific data and concepts at meetings, on posters and in presentations. It is also frequently used as a measuring and data recording tool for studies such as growth, percent coverage and camouflage. Photographs are increasingly used in taxonomy.
The format and content of the course is geared to upper level undergraduates and graduate students. Amateur photographers with a strong background in biology are welcome.
