Hello everyone! A new Meetup for us!
One of our members will be giving us access to Wayne's Daughters Greenhouse (http://www.waynesdaughtersgreenhouses.com/) on Douglas Ave on the north side of Racine. We will meet at the Greenhouse at 2pm on Saturday, April 24th. This is just about the BEST time of year to do flower photography, because the flowers are just starting to bloom. Wayne's Daughters schedules their season opening to coincide with with blooming of the flowers, and we will be getting in the weekend before!
We will start with a brief discussion of how to take the best pictures of the flowers. We will talk about macro lenses, the benefits of using a tripod, and ambient light vs. flash. The rest of the time, will be SHOOTING!
Please come out and join us for this shoot, and be sure to post images to the meetup page afterward!
I will also have some tips on MY BLOG (http://studiomlp.blogspot.com/) from time to time, as well as posting some links to Amazon.com products that might be worthwhile. DISCLAIMER - I do make a few cents if you buy anything from Amazon after clicking on the link from my page. So, if you were going to buy something from Amazon anyway, why not click on one of my links?
Studio MLP will also be hosting a Studio Lighting Class taught by Scott Detweiler. Want to learn some awesome lighting techniques that can be used not only in studio but in the field as well? The class will take place at Studio MLP in Racine, 2200 Northwestern Avenue. Go to the Studio MLP Meetup page (http://www.meetup.com/studiomlp/) to RSVP.
See ya soon!
