Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens Photoshoot

Bring tripod, bug spray, water, and both wide and longer lenses (100-400 or 70-200). Try not to leave any photo equipment in cars, I have heard there has been some car break ins in the past.

Meadowlark Early Morning Photo Shoot

When paying the entrance fee, If you tell the cashier that you belong to a Meetup group in the past we have gotten a discount. Normally it is $5.00 for 54 and under and $2.50 for 55 and over. Discounted prices would be $4.00 and $1.50 for the two options above. Bring equipment based on what you want to photograph. Flowers, architecture, birds, insects are possible subjects. I would recommend bringing a tripod, wide angle lens, a long lens if available such as a 200 to 400 capacity for birds such as humming birds, and or a macro lens for flowers or insects.

MWCC Photographers have an opportunity to photograph at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens starting at 6:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 19. (The Gardens regularly open at 10 a.m.) The possible rain chances on Saturday morning can provide some unique and interesting photo opportunities. The recommendation is to bring rain gear for you and your camera along with tripods, macro and wide angle lenses to capture flowers with potential rain drops. This is a self guided photo opportunity. There is a entrance fee and if you indicate that you are with a photo meetup group there should be a discounted rate. $4.00 for 54 and under and $1.50 for 55+ in age.
