Congratulations to Natalie Jens!
Natalie and several others took part in our first-ever Nature Photography Workshop, which was offered at the recent Whooping Crane Festival in and around Princeton, Wisconsin.
We invited all participants to submit their favorite photo from Sunday’s outing with instructor David Heritsch. Our Board was tasked with selecting their favorite and the one with the most votes was Natalie’s fantastic image showing a Green frog (Rana clamitans).
Natalie will receive an Amazon.com gift-card with $100 loaded onto it.
Here is Natalie’s winning photo!
And here’s a bit more about Natalie: I am 14 years old and started High School this Fall in Beaver Dam. I live on the lake in Beaver Dam and I think living on the lake was a big part of becoming interested in photography. We have beautiful sunsets, pelicans and herons right in our backyard. I love taking pictures!!! The photography class you offered really helped me better understand a lot of the elements that can make a big difference when taking pictures. I’m so thankful to have won the photo contest.
I joined the golf team this fall (having never golfed in my life) and really enjoy it but my favorite sport is basketball. My Beaver Dam team has won the Division 2 State Championship in grades 6, 7 and 8. I was honored to be selected to the all tournament team each of those years.
Thanks again for offering such a great opportunity. The class was fun and informative, everyone in the class was great and the instructor was fantastic!!! I hope you do it again next year – I’ll be there 😉
