    THanks Michelle- Really was a great meetup. We should all do some research on the subject and share some of what we find. Some great info on Macro if you google it. Ideas, images, techniques, blogs etc etc. Lots of amazing images here: http://www.smashingapps.com/2008/12/16/43-of-the-extremely-creative-wonders-of-macro-photography.html

    So what kind of macro lenses are guys bringing? :) I finally ordered some extension tubes so I can get closer than 4 feet to my subject.

    February 17, 2013

    • Arie M.

      I've been playing with my Kenko Tubes (the ones that have the electronic connections along with autofocus) and it's a lot tougher than I thought so be sure and practice a big before this weekend!

      March 4, 2013

    • Gary S.

      What brand mounts are on the tubes? (canon, nikon, etc)

    Folks love their gear more or at least as much as they love to shoot pictures, so rain photography might not be that successful. OR if that facility has an indoor opportunities, I am up for that and leave the outdoor captures on luck. :-)

      This isn't in my blob post, but just read that think tank photo is doing a promotion on their camera rain gear. If you read my post and interested in gear for shooting in the rain, check out the think tank site.

    I am watching the weather for our Photo Walk. At first, it was supposed to be sunny this Sat. but now their is a 30% chance of rain. Do y'all want a rain date or??

    March 4, 2013

    • Arie M.

      I think we should wait a little longer and see what happens...You know capricious the weather is here!

      1 · March 4, 2013

      Yes we should wait.

    Hi folks, I can bring Canon 60mm macro. Does anyone knows if ring flash works in this, because then I can rent that kit. Thank you.

    February 27, 2013

    • Michele W.

      I always phone CanonUSA.com & talk to tech.

      February 27, 2013

  • PJ

    That will be nice to learn about ring flash, :-)

    We spoke to Arboretum staff, who welcome our group. Please simply take the Inner Loop Trail, follow signs (staying ON trail!) to Meadow Pond (largest one with island). That's our destination.

    I seriously suggest contacting them about their policies before arriving. They were not keen on photography groups when we contacted them before. I explained this to Michele when she wanted this posted as an event at HoustonPhotowalks. Would hate for a huge groups of photographers to get there without cooperating with them and then get run off.

      I will take care of it. TY.

      I had called them back to see their policies and the person on the phone seemed super interested in working with a group of photographers (if an appropriate sized donation was involved). Think about $[masked] for the group was acceptable. Must say that's a much better attitude than when I previously approached them. I didn't ask about this weekend, but she did say there was already a group coming in this weekend, I assume she was talking about the Renegade group. So I had to pick another date for HPW. Think that she meant it wouldn't be fair/nice to invite another photography group to someone else's event -- which I totally understand how that can really cause problems. HPW can go on any other date then the one you've already set up.
