Photo Outings from 2020

Bonsai Silhouette Show at Cantigny Park – February 15, 2020

There were members who showed up but didn’t register and ten members who did register for the bonsai show which started at 10 am and ended at 4 pm. The outings committee hopes that all the members who visited took some nice pictures of bonsai in their winter form. Also there were supplies for sale such as tools, pottery, plants, and demo’s to get you started to create your very own bonsai.

The Prairie State Bonsai Society presented quite a few displays and bonsai vendors were there to answer any questions you may have had.

Macro Photo Shoot in the Arbor Room – January 11, 2020

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.
