"We advance the art and science of photography through technical and aesthetic educational programs and through public service photography."
Join us for our next General Meeting, Wednesday, March 6th, 7:00pm. Lewis Katz will be returning for a Member "Club Critique". We will have a DropBox link for members to submit photos.
This is a great opportunity to submit a photo you've, perhaps, been working on, or find yourself coming back to because you just aren't getting it quite right, for a fresh set of eyes to review. It is not a competition, nor contest. It is not exclusive to experienced photographers. All levels are encouraged to submit. No awards or judgement will be given! It's purely educational and a way to grow as a photographer.
This will be a VIRTUAL ONLY event. A Zoom link will be sent prior to the event.
Cylburn Arboretum is a great photo opportunity in the spring, starting mid-March, with an explosion of daffodil's around the grounds of the 200 acres of trees, gardens, trails of peace and serenity.
I made a site survey Feb 27th to see the daffodil's above ground and budding. My best guess is they will begin blooming soon, Last year the flowers were declining by St. Patrick's Day. I am targeting Saturday, March 9th for this year's visit. The gates open at 8:00am. Morning is the best time to shoot, due to low crowd activity, best light (if there is any) and possible ground fog.
The weather forecast is iffy this time of year, so it's best to pack for possible showers. I would also suggest bringing a pair of kneepads for low angle or macro photography. Home Depot has cheap gardening kneepads for $6.99.
Other bloomers that may of may not be ready include the tulip magnolia trees and, in the woods, Virginia bluebells. And, of course, the "Bates Motel" style Cylburn Mansion is always a photo attraction.
