Flash Photography with Dave Johnson
On Wednesday, May 15, 6:30 pm, Dave Johnson will show us how to get the best results with your flash equipment, indoors and out. Dave has long had a passion for teaching photography, having taught at several colleges and universities in the upper Midwest. He’s done presentations at Spring Break and area camera clubs. He is currently manager of the wedding and portrait division of National Camera Exchange. He’s a member of the PPA and was awarded the MNPPA’s annual “Addie Award” for outstanding service to photography. Bring your camera and speed lights for hands-on activities after his talk.
Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden and Bird Sanctuary Group Outing
- May 18, (Saturday) 8 am
- The correct address is Theodore Wirth Parkway Minneapolis, MN 55411
The gardens open at 7:30 AM. This 13 acre garden and bird sanctuary is a popular spot due to the huge variety of flowers and native plants along trails that visit bog, forest and upland prairie habitats. There is no admission fee. Informal photos of plants and garden areas for personal use are permitted while remaining completely on the trails at all times. The use of tripods and other equipment is strongly discouraged. Any tripods or equipment used must remain completely on the trails at all times and must not impede other visitors’ ability to walk on a trail. This time of the year is the best for woodland flowers and spring ephemerals. I plan on bringing a tripod, reflector and diffuser. Here is a link for more information on the gardens.
On Saturday May 18, 1:00-3:00 pm we will be judging the Pictorial contest for N4C. We will need three judges, one person to operate the judging machine, one person to display images from a laptop and one person to record scores. Please let me know if you can help by using the contact form.
