Second Nature | Natural History Museum of Los Angeles

Second Nature

The Museum welcomes you, whether you're an urban naturalist, foodie, master gardener, DIY tinkerer, or all-around fun-seeker! NHMLA’s fall 2018 Second Nature workshop series will explore photography via three individual classes. These workshops are fun, hands-on opportunities to learn something new, something that will soon be second nature to you!



Nature in Focus

Thursday evenings from 7–9 pm |  September 11, October 9, November 6

Photography has become an important part of everyday life, but did you know that you can take beautiful photos with your phone that can also be used for science? Join us for an evening of photography as we take an after-hours tour of the traveling exhibit, Wildlife Photographer of the Year. Venture behind the scenes to view spectacular Museum collections and learn some cool tips and tricks about taking great photos with your phone. You'll learn from Museum scientists about the role photography plays in documenting and sharing collections, and will have a chance to practice taking photos of some fascinating collections. We will also teach you ways to make the most of your phone's camera and show you how your nature photos can be used by scientists to better understand urban nature.


Members $20 per workshop  |  Non-members $23 per workshop.
