Winter cold and a rather drab landscape have a way of discouraging even the most adventurous photographer from heading out to shoot. Don't let your photographic skills deteriorate due to non-use! Join Susanna on Tuesdays in January and February (and maybe March, if the weather slows down blooms in the wild) to keep your photo sensibilities and skills sharp and ready for our fabled Appalachian Spring.
We'll begin this series on Tuesday, January 14th, at the Biltmore Estate. We'll meet at the Conservatory, which if you're not familiar, is beyond the main house, on the far side of the gardens. Click on http://www.biltmore.com/estate where you'll find, at the bottom of the page on the left, downloadable maps. The top map shows the location. Plan to join us at the conservatory between 9:00 AM and 11 AM or noon. The conservatory offers good close-up photography opportunities with its wide range of beautiful plants, including orchids.
When we're through there, it would be fun to have lunch together. I suggest Cedric's at Antler Village. On the way there, we may discover some interesting outdoor photo ops. We'll "play it by ear."
Finally, a couple of suggestions:
1) Bring a tripod and close-up equipment.
2) If you don't have an annual pass for Biltmore, you might consider buying one. If you're planning this as a one-time event, order your ticket online to save $10.
Any questions? Contact me through the meet-up website.
Looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday, the 14th. In the meantime, stay warm!
