Local gardening and photography enthusiasts may want to attend an upcoming class offered by the Marais des Cygnes Extension District.

The class, titled “Photographing Your Garden,” will begin at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 23, at the Paola Extension office located at 104 S. Brayman St., according to a news release.

Extension Master Gardener Nancy Kalman will be the presenter. Kalman has been a master gardener for many years and enjoys educating the public about gardening and capturing those beautiful moments when things are in full bloom, according to the release.

“My garden is always changing, and I love keeping a record of that moment in time by taking photographs,” Kalman said. “With some of the basics of photography, and today’s technology, you can take great photographs of your garden or any garden.”

The presentation will be about nature photography, not studio lighting or excessive setup. All types of cameras will be discussed, including cell phones, according to the release.
