What would your "ideal" nature photography group include?

I would love to find a more local group (Lake Co/McHenry Co, IL) - People to share ideas, tips, go on shoots with...etc. I am always about learning more..... that is what i'd like to get out of a Nature photography group.

What inspires you about Nature Photography?

I see photo opts everywhere - literally everywhere - but no where as prominently as in Nature. I have raced down a country road to get a sunset shot over a lake with the perfect rays; I have pulled off the side of the road to shoot cows in a pasture ( & got yelled at for doing so!).

What kind of Camera and Lenses do you use?

Sony A55 --Lenses: Sony 18-55 M, Sony 18-70 , Sony[masked], Newer .45 Wide angle Macro.

What is your experience in Nature Photography or Photography of any type?

I am a Real Estate Photographer by trade - but I enjoy both landscape & macro nature photography very much.

Please list some of your Favorite Nature Spots in Illinois?

Starved Rock - All over Lake County Forest Preserves - Chicago Botanic Gardens.... Chicago.


I am a Real Estate Photographer & Marketing Assistant by trade. I have been an artist all my life & in the most recent years, have found my love of photography expanding. I have held jobs in Graphic Design, Music Promotion & Web Design.

What cheryl b. is saying about this Meetup Group

The Chicago Botanic Gardens was my 1st Meetup. Very nice people to hang out with. I brought my hubby & daughter - they had a lot of fun too. I look forward to contributing ideas, etc... :)
