It’s October already, and while I’m finding it hard to believe summer is almost gone, I am looking forward to fall’s photography opportunities.
I’ve begun to think ahead to late autumn (Panorama photography class begins November 25 at the Chicago Botanic Garden.) but also to winter and spring.
I will offer classes in “Photographing Holiday Lights” again at the CBG. Thanks to students’ suggestions from last December, this time we will have two classes: one for new photographers
(Dec. 2) and one for those of you who are more experienced (Dec. 4). The Winter Photo Workshop at the Garden begins on January 12th, for 3 Sundays from 1 – 4 pm. The Grove, National Historic Landmark in Glenview, will be the site of “Photographing the Bare Bones of Winter” class. This 2-session class meets on February 1 and 8. It will be held in the Redfield house from 9 am – 12 noon.
Spring will bring some new endeavors, one of which is Sunrise Photography. It seems spring is the best time to offer this class, since I’m relatively certain that going out with photo gear in the dark during cold winter months wouldn’t be at the top of anyone’s list.
As for my own photography experience, I will be heading to Galena later in the month to test out the new leveling base for my tripod. As always, I recommend camera equipment that I have personally found useful and workable.
