April LAPC group shoot – Tropical Fish

April 4, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am


What:  Tropical Fish

Where:  Noelridge Park Greenhouse, 4900 Council St NE CR

When:  Saturday April 4th 8:30am to 10:30am


In April we’ll be shooting tropical fish at the annual Eastern Iowa Aquarium Association (EIAA) annual tropical fish show.  Meet us at the Noelridge Greenhouse on the Saturday before Easter, April 4th, bright and early at 8:30 in the morning.  The show participants must be hands off their displays at 8am sharp, as judging will begin at that time.  There will be 2 judges at the show, please give judges right of way.  Our shoot is over at 10:30 and the show opens to the public at 11:00am.


Enter in special door!  As you enter the park off Council Street, take a sharp left turn even before you are near the greenhouse.  The road takes you behind the greenhouse building.  There is a door back there next to a garage door.  That is the entrance they asked us to use for this shoot.  See map below.

And yes, you may also shoot the flowers in the greenhouse while you are there photographing the fish.


Please RSVP to Amy at [email protected]otoclub.org so we can give the greenhouse staff and the EIAA show coordinator an appx head count.


This shoot, like most of our shoots, is free to attend for all current LAPC members.  Please consider donating 2 or 3 images back to the EIAA as a thank you for letting our group in to photograph during their annual contest.  Please forward images or links to images in dropbox/similar to [email protected].


Special thanks to Bob Hollenbeck, LAPC member and EIAA member who helped me set this up and for also providing the attached image.
