Indoor Macro Shoot: Matthaei Botanical Gardens

It's cold and snowy outside but botanical gardens offer at least temporary respite from the elements and the opportunity to photographically explore exotic plant species. The University of Michigan's Matthaei Botanical Gardens offers just such possibilities. Bring a tripod, a tele-zoom, and whatever macro equipment you have and spend the morning making macro photos. WE WILL REPEAT THIS SHOOT ON A WEEKEND IN FEBRUARY...Just waiting to get the ok to use tripods...Currently, tripods are NOT allowed on Wednesdays, Saturdays or Sundays...It's really not worthwhile unless we can use tripods.

    No place better on a cold winter day. Great for photography if you like gardens and nice to chat with other photographers.
