RANGELEY — The Sunday, July 19, natural history program at 2 p.m. at the Wilhelm Reich Museum will feature “Point and Shoot Nature Photography” by Kirk Betts.
Betts’ program will be about different techniques for using point and shoot digital cameras. Although those cameras do have limitations for use in nature photography, with a little training people can take some wonderful pictures.

Betts is a self-taught photographer who has been living in Rangeley for the past 27 years. While he does not work as a photographer, he does maintain his own blog about photography called “The Wild Edge,” and he has had a life-long interest and love of the art.
Visitors are encouraged to visit the observatory building that details the life and work of physician/scientist Wilhelm Reich whose interest in the natural environment led to the introduction of the natural science program in 1989.
The observatory is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday in July and August, Adult admission is $6; children 12 and under, free.
All the Sunday Nature programs are free of charge.
