Macro Field Trip, Saturday, June 23, 2018

It’s that time again – Macro field trip to our gardens.
Date: June 23; Time: 3:00 pm
Rain date: June 24.

You will have a plethora of plants and flowers to photograph – we have over 450 species of plants around our house – native and ornamental perennials, bushes. There will be lots of insects in the garden, posing to have their picture taken – some of them are not that welcome (black flies and mosquitoes), so you might want to bring your favourite insect repellent – we’ll have Off!, just in case…

Although the start time is set to 3:00 pm, if you want to, you can come as early as 1:00 pm to become familiar with the plants. The introduction and a slideshow will start at 3:00 pm. There is no official end-time, you can shoot until your ISO, flash or the mosquitoes will let you do that 😉

Bring your camera, macro lens and macro accessories for the field trip. If you think you will need a tripod, bring it as well. When I am shooting macro in our garden, I rarely use a tripod, since it can make the focusing harder if there is some breeze or worse, some stronger wind.

Please let me know if you are planning to come. As we get closer to the date, I’ll send out more information and the directions to our place.

Please bring a signed waiver with you as well – you can download the waiver from our web site.

See you at our place at 3:00 pm on June 23!

Happy shooting,
