May LAPC shoot – Spring Wildflowers

May 4, 2014 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

What:  Spring Wildflower photography

Where:  Wickiup Hill Learning Center

Address:  10260 Morris Hills Road, Toddville

When:  Sunday May 4th, 4:30 to 7:00pm

Join us in May as veteran wildflower photographer Bob Lancaster, leads us on a trek through the Wickiup woodlands, wetlands, prairie and savannah on the afternoon of Sunday May 4th.  (Note:  this is the same day as the May LAPC meeting.)  Meet at the front door to Wickiup and wear your comfortable hiking shoes for the appx two mile hike.  After the hike, you are welcome to stay until sunset (appx 8:09) when the gates close.

Suggested equipment to bring:  Tripod, Macro lens, Bug spray – keep in mind DEET is great for avoiding ticks and mosquitoes but bad for camera bodies. Ticks are already out!  Empty garbage bag or similar to lie down onto the grass without getting dirty.

The shoot date will stay as planned unless it is pouring down rain at the start time.  This wildflower shoot will still take place even if there is a light mist as the mist would help create beautiful images.

As with most of our club shoots, this shoot is free to attend for all current LAPC members.  As always, please think about donating a few images back to Wickiup as a thank you for all that they do for our club.  Links to images can be sent to the [email protected] email and I will forward to Wickiup.  Remember to include an ‘Image Rights’ note in your email for your photo donation.
