May is an interesting time in Minnesota for flowers. Before the trees leaf out, there are a number of spring ephemerals that bloom. These last only a couple of weeks before they are gone! Our goal will be to try and locate some of these flowers and try a number of different techniques for capturing them.
We will begin in the classroom with a presentation on flower photography that will help you get some of those "wow" photos. Who knows, you may even get a great shot to share with Mom on Mother's Day! Some of the topics to be covered are:
-5 types of flower photography-Challenges-Tips and tricks-Locations for photographing flowers
After the class, we will go out and photograph some of the flowers around the refuge. Please bring bug spray, sturdy footwear, and long pants (we are in prime tick season).
