Photography at The Brooklyn Botanic Gardens

Okay Shutterbugs, Sunday May 4, 2014 at 10:00 I will be hosting a photographic visit to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. I will teach a brief class on close-up and macro photography and then we will scatter throughout the garden to photograph the miracle and beauty that is floral.  I will be throughout the gardens to assist and answer questions until 3:00pm.


Landscape photography could also be done here.  High Dynamic Range photography is not out of the question either.


Tripods are allowed in some areas but not all.  Every photographic level is welcome.  Be sure to bring your tripod, remote release, close-up filters, marco lens and extension tube.  We will experiment with all of these.


The fee includes admission to the garden.  Register early as this class is limited.

    It was amazing. I believe that I got some really nice pictures. The Cherry Blossoms and the Tulips were in all it's bloom glory.

    Michael - I added the extra entry fee for Tony. Hoping all the rain will bring out the blooms!

    Michael - what is the cost of admission - Tony won't attend the training session and will most likely just carry my equipment - my own personal Sherpa - lol.
