If you're looking to get out of those house and fine tune those photo skills all in one go, Club Camera Tucson has some events for you. Beginning on Wednesday, Feb. 5 and continuing throughout the month, the local camera club will be sponsoring three different workshops that will focus on different aspects of shooting outdoors at the historic Agua Caliente Park (12325 E. Roger Road).

On Wednesday, Feb. 10, Club Camera landscape and nature photographer James Capo will offer tips for taking "Better Backyard Bird Photography." The workshop runs from 9:30 until 11:30 a.m.

Then, on Thursday, Feb. 18 from 10 a.m. 'til noon, Capo will be teaching the "Shoot Better Landscapes" workshop, with an emphasis on composition and light in natural settings.

Finally, on Wednesday, Feb. 24, you can learn the "Top Tips for Better Travel Photos" from the club's president Steve Dell. The final workshop, which begins at 10 a.m., will teach how to shoot pictures worthy of travel magazines on your own vacation. 

The workshops are open to all skill levels with tips that work for almost any camera, with both classroom and hands-on instruction. All workshops are free to Pima County Natural Resources Parks and Recreation (NRPR) annual passholders or $5 for non-passholders, with free entry to the park and gallery included. Registration is required in advance, and can be made through Pima County's website by clicking "Register Now."

The workshops are sponsored in conjunction with an fine art photography exhibit titled “Lensmasters: Life and Landscapes of the Southwest,” which is on display at the Ranch House Art Gallery at the park from Feb. 6 through March 2. A "Meet the Artists" reception will take place on Sunday, Feb. 14 from 1 until 3 p.m.
