Welcome! Thank you for becoming a Member of the Maine Photography Club Group. I am glad to have you here and look forward to your attendance at the Events to start taking excellent and exciting pictures.
The Maine Flower Show will be held at Thompson's Point this year. The show "is one of the biggest gardening and horticultural shows in the region where landscapers, exhibitors, designers and horticulturists come together in one anticipated event. This year attendees aren't just observers - they will immerse in colors, smells, and sounds of the great state of Maine and experience its natural beauty firsthand."
Our theme is to try and capture a "smell" or "sound" of any flower or plant you pick out. What we are looking for is an image that can capture not only the beauty of the botanical but also an impression of its scent or sound.
The light, the shadows, the surrounding environment will contribute to this.
Any lens will do. This exercise is not just meant for close-ups. Large formats are welcome.
For more information you can look up "scent-o-graphy" to get an idea. Scent-o-graphy is scientific but it might spark some thoughts.
Please check out - maineflowershow.com for directions to Thompson's Point, Parking and Tickets. There is construction going on and parking is probably best off-site with the use of a shuttle.
Tickets average $20.00 and can be bought online or at local retailers indicated on the website.
A photography and videography conference where the community comes together to innovate, create and collaborate.
It is happening this year, August 5 - 7, at The Hilton on Michigan Avenue in Chicago.
The best part is that this is a HANDS-ON Conference; which means over 85% of the classes will be taught around Chicago and not in the classroom. Learn from Top Professionals in the field - everything from Sports to Wedding to Boudoir to Portraits to Marketing and more, it's all going to be there.
