Wayne's Daughters Greenhouse

  • Wayne's Daughters Greenhouse

Hello everyone! A new Meetup for us!

One of our members will be giving us access to Wayne's Daughters Greenhouse 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 from time to time, as well as posting some links to 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 to RSVP.

See ya soon!

    Casey (one of the 'daughters') was very happy to share her time and space with us, the flowers were beautiful and the company was fun. All in all a good time all around.

    Great Meetup everyone! For those of you that let a little drizzle and cloud cover scare you off, you missed out. The whole greenhouse was covered and warm, and the diffused light from both the clouds and the greenhouse roof made for GREAT soft light. Casey was a great host, and I think everyone who showed got some GREAT images.

    Any macro lens and any lens focusing to around 8 to 10 inches from the front element to the subject usually makes a decent lens. A background (usually a velvet piece or stiff cardboard about 20 X 20 inches) helps to isolate the subject form the background.

    Yep, there is plenty of room inside for us if necessary.

    I've never been to this place before so wondered does it matter if it rains as they are calling for this weekend? Many places have flowers in as well as out so I was just wondering. .. ..

    That would help me as well - even noon... I have a commitment at 5 in Milwaukee that I need to get home and dressed up for...

    Hello, I am wondering if it is possible to get into greenhouse by 1pm. to shoot, as must leave at 4:30 pm.
    Thanks to who ever may have the answer.
