Photo Outings

Each month MAPS selects a location around the Chicagoland area to go for a Photo Outing. The major theme for these outings is nature. We select one outing per month, and you can see when and where we go below.

Please note that you can sign up for each event listed below by following the specified link. Also note that by signing up for each event you are agreeing to the MAPS Photo Outing Waiver of Liability.

After the photo outing, you can share a few of your images with the others. You know the routine: 1000 pixels on the long side, saved as JPG with a sRGB color space, then you can drag and drop them to Google Photo using the link below.

If you are not sure how to prepare or upload your images, please follow the detailed instructions in these documents:

Recent Outings:

Macro Photo Shoot – January 11, 2020 – Arbor Room

  • Even though the weather prevented many members from attending, sixteen MAPS members enjoyed a morning of experimenting with different scenarios set up in the spacious well-lit meeting room at the Thornhill Education Center.  A big THANK YOU is extended to Tim Rex for his demonstration on high contrast photography and to Darcy Berg for helping and assisting members with the equipment.
  • All the members brought equipment (lighting, reflectors, and backdrops) to arrange the props and share with each other.  Fresh flowers and fruit, pottery, glassware, metal objects, feathers, you name it were available for a fun filled morning of macro and close-up photography.
