Nature Photography at Bicentennial Youth Park in Deland

I enjoyed an informative Nature Photography Workshop yesterday at Bicentennial Youth Park, in Deland, just east of the Volusia County Fairgrounds. I have driven past this park many times and never even realized it was there! It's like a hidden "jewel of nature" in the middle of Volusia County. The park, which is owned by the Volusia County School District, is not open to the public, but is instead used as an educational center for schools and groups. It was nice to be able to visit there and shoot pictures during today's workshop. I want to give a big thank you to photographer Scott Helfrich and Bonnie Cary, who is with Land Acquisition and Management, with the County of Volusia, for hosting the event Be sure to stop by Scott's website and have a look at his wonderful nature photography. Be sure to check all of the pictures in my gallery for the event by clicking here or watch the slideshow.

I seemed to be drawn to the multitude of park benches scattered along the trails.

This is about as close as we get to Autumn in Florida.

About Me

My photo

I am a portrait and fine art photographer, servicing the Central Florida area. I have had a love of photography for as long as I can remember. Having spent 15+ years of my adult life as a graphic designer, I knew I had a creative mind and a visual eye for things. While design was my forte, I always carried a camera everywhere, and somehow was the "designated photographer" at just about every event I attended. But, it wasn't until I picked up my first "real camera," a Nikon DSLR, in 2008, that I really knew photography was what I was meant to do with my life! I photographed everything in sight, after getting that camera. But, I knew early on that I was meant to photograph people. I just genuinely love faces! All faces. I could look at faces all day long. Faces are just beautiful to me. Doesn't matter the age, the color, the shape or the size. I find nothing more fascinating then faces.
