American Rose Society Master Rosarian and Horticultural Judge to Speak on Garden and Flower Photography at CT Valley Camera Club Meeting, May 6.
AREA WIDE: The guest speaker at the Monday May 6 meeting of the Connecticut Valley Camera Club (CVCC) will be American Rose Society Master Rosarian and Horticultural Judge David Candler who will give a presentation titled “Garden and Flower Photography”. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the Lymes’ Senior Center, 26 Town Woods Rd., Old Lyme, Conn. All are welcome. There is no admission charge.
About the presentation: The program will cover garden landscape to macro photography of small specimens: including planning, workflow, big gardens, close-up and artistic considerations. The talk is aimed at existing photographers desiring to improve this area of photography rather than a gardener learning photography.
