Lens Seminar to run Saturday 12.9

December 9, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Ever wondered which lens is best for the subject you’ve just selected? Ever wished you had a different focal length but were unsure which one to buy? The what and why of lenses is what this seminar is all about. Take the guess-work out of finding the right focal length as we explore what each lens category is designed to do, and it’s just in time for holiday giving (or receiving)!

This is an action-packed 3 hours that ends with time for you to become more closely acquainted with the lens that’s currently on your camera. Yes, we’ll step outside the classroom to explore all the possibilities your current lens provides. It’s great fun, so sign up soon while openings still exist.

Selecting the Right Lens, December 9th, (1 Saturday), 9 -12 noon, Plant Science Lab.

There are 3 convenient ways to register:

  1. Call 847.835.8261  
  2. Visit www.chicagobotanic.org/adulted
  3. Enroll at the Info Desk in the CBG Visitor Center during periods of relative calm

It’s all about the focal length in this seminar.

About Jack

A classically trained musician since childhood, Jack Carlson always had the “ear” of an artist. It was only a short step to develop the artist’s “eye” as well.

The portfolio of this certified photographer reveals images that emphasize mood and composition. Their purpose is to present a feeling in addition to portrayal of person, place or thing. Sometimes that feeling is nostalgia; other times it is serenity.

Each photograph tells a story.
