South Carolina Botanical Garden Photo Safari

Our next meet up will be a traveling one to South Carolina Botanical Garden. I have never been up there, but hear it is beautiful. We will be going over how to photograph flowers and macro photography and will throw in some outdoor portrait information while we are up there.

We will meet at the college in Oakwood at 8am and will head up from there. That way we might be able to car pool some.

I am sure we will be up there most of the day, I am not expecting to get back until late, most likely around 7-8pm.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions and I look forward to seeing everyone.

Thanks,

Michael Robertson

    Is there a specific place we can meet at the gardens? This is my first group meeting so want to make sure I get the right group, lol. :)

      I will send out my number so we can pick a place to meet up there since not everyone will be meeting at the college.

    We are meeting at 8am and leaving soon after.
    The address for the school is 3820 Mundy Mill Rd, Oakwood, GA 30503. If you come in the first entrance coming from 985. We will be in the first parking lot on the right.

    Let me know if anyone has any other questions.

    1. We may encounter a wedding or two. This is a popular time of year and a popular place.
    2. Directions to "the college in Oakwood" please. This is my first time with this group and I'm not familiar with the Flowery Branch area.
    3. Are we meeting in Oakwood at 8, or are we arriving in SC at 8?
    Thanks

    I am sort of up in the air now. My parents are saying we are doing Father's Day on Saturday so they can go to a family reunion out of town on Sunday. Trying to figure this out...

    Hey Mike, I have a friend who's been to the SC garden and he said photographers have to check in. I'm not sure if this might be a problem but I thought I'd mention it.

    I will probably meet everyone there. I am between Oakwood & SC. Can anyone tell me where the botanical garden is in reference to Garrison Arena?

    Do plan to stop for ice cream at the student center. See Clemson.edu/icecream for details. Blue cheese (some of the best) is also available. My daughter attended there, so I speak from personal experience. It is GREAT.

  • Leslie M.

    Driving from Suwanee if anyone wants to carpool.

    May 14, 2013

  • sandy j.

    At one point, you mentioned about the group spending the night. From the above, I take it that they will not. Just want to be sure. I'd love to attend, but need to be back Saturday night.
