Macro Shoot at McDowell Park

It's been awhile since we went on a hike at McDowell Park, so let's meet at the Nature Center and then we will take a hiking trail and have some fun with our macro lenses. Be sure to bring your tripod, tweezers, small brush, something small to diffuse light (just in case). If we have a little rain you might want to think about some rain protection for your camera. You can get one at Biggs Camera for around $10. Always handy to have. Another good idea I've learned is to have something to lay on. I have a narrow black plastic mat that I take along with me just in case.

    Understood, rains starting in south Charlotte. Everyone have a great day. Let's replan the event. I need to get better at this style if photography.

    Yes it's pouring down here too, just started. So it's a no go because it's only going to get worse. I just packed my jeep to go but not gonna happen.

    As they would say where I came from, "fugetaboutit". Pouring in Belmont now - whitecaps on Lake Wylie. Thanks for trying Terri.

    They are calling for severe thunderstorms and high winds in the morning through until the afternoon. I heard 60mph winds. Not sure we should be in the woods if this is the case. If it is storming by 8:00 a.m. this meetup will be called off. Feel free to call me at[masked]

      Given the forecast, I'm going to bow out now and try to spend the morning catching up on work. Hope this gets rescheduled.

    Hi Terie, will you send out a go or no go status in the morning?

    Terie......... looks like a windy heavy thunder storm is scheduled for around 8am tomorrow.
    Would it reasonable to try and move it a bit later? Or are we cast in concrete........... ??
    Just my thoughts as I am carpooling with David

    Apologies that we won't be able to join the shoot due to some scheduling changes. We look forward to seeing some of the pictures.

      What mount?

    Dannie, I'm not really a "macro" man, and do not own any macro lens yet; but I do use both extension tubes & close-up lens/filters with fair results...
    Just some food for thought.... David
