Photographing the Orchid Show — Sundays

February 24, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

A wall of orchids at the 2018 show.

The CBG’s 2019 Orchid Show In the Tropics, will be a riot of color and form. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to get images of these wonderful plants. Since our class will be admitted to the show at 8:30 am (90 minutes before it opens to the public) we will be able to use tripods and flash units to capture orchids in all their splendor. There are a great many areas of the show, so each class meeting will begin with a powerpoint of the area we will be exploring that week. Of course, there will be handouts on camera settings and focusing techniques in addition. After photographing the show , we’ll return to the classroom to enjoy your pictures from the previous week.  This show is always a favorite and the class fills fast. Don’t wait to enroll. As always, there are 3 Ways to Register:

1. Call 847.835.8261
2. Visit www.chicagobotanic.org/education
3. Membership and Info Desk staff are now able to take registrations during periods of relative calm.
