Carlsbad Flower Fields

  • April 16 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Regarding the Canon event going on the 17th I learned that they are not being put through the same regimen that we had to go through, so I spoke with the lady in charge of groups. An apology was given, she'll waive the legal paper work and will still only charge everybody $13 to enter.

----------------------------------------------

THE CARLSBAD FLOWER FIELDS are now open and should be in full bloom by April. Let's focus on perspective, depth of field, and do some creative editing to make not just great flower photos, but art. Either abstract, oil on canvas filter, water color effect, collages, even pop art is acceptable.

Everyone has to sign a liability waiver... believe me it is out of my control. The lady in charge of group/event functions said this is required by all types of groups and then she mailed me their one page waiver form.

THERE IS AN ENTRY FEE OF $13 PER MEMBER. FEE MUST BE PAID IN CASH DIRECTLY TO ME (15) FIFTEEN DAYS PRIOR TO THE EVENT DATE. I have to pay for the group in one money order, so please contact me ASAP

They won't accept separate payments out of each person from any group anymore.

Your assignment:

Read and study the following links and then practice the lessons learn at the flower fields.

Pick your best 5 images after editing to post onto here for everyone to comment on each other's images. Extra challenge create 3 to 5 sets of collages for an impressive display using either texture, color, form, patterns, ...

    Hi, i dont have a car so can anyone give me a ride for this event.

    1 · March 24

  • Sheila Newbery Redheaded P.

    As of now there are 17 folks signed up to go from both Photo Collective groups, but zero signatures onto the liability waiver form.

    March 24

  • Sheila Newbery Redheaded P.

    This is more of a problem for me because I'm having to drive everywhere just for you all to attend as a group. It is fun going all together vs going alone. I don't get paid and am not making any money for organizing any of the events I create for you all, so if that is what anyone thinks, rest assured I am a true volunteer.

    • Isaac P.

      Can't make it, running too late, call me if you need to vent, I appreciate you

      1 · March 23

    • Sheila Newbery Redheaded P.

      Thank you Issac I posted an extention for 15 days prior. I'm really burning out from trying to get folks to cooperate. Sometimes I have to remind myself why do I volunteer?

    I've attended every year with other photography groups. We met up there and only paid the entry fee, we walk around shoot our shots and that's it's. The waiver is only for professional photo shoots.

    March 23

    • Sheila Newbery Redheaded P.

      No one has to go, but please change your RSVP if you don't want to sign the waiver... believe me it is out of my control. The lady in charge of group and event functions said this is required by all groups and then I recieved the waiver in the mail. Professional groups have additional requirements than what we have to do. Another requirement was that everyone's payment must be handed in to them in one payment as a group. They won't accept separate payments out of each person from any group.

      I will contact them to let them know what we are about... I don't foresee any problems. There has been photo groups that have attended in the past. Thank you for sharing your concern about us showing up.
