The evening included a special Show & Tell presentation featuring the 50-Year Celebrations theme of our main program. There were 9 MAPS member images on display which were printed for the Schulenberg Prairie dedication featured at a recent Arboretum donor event; and we also featured the 50th anniversary of the Sterling Morton Library and the Illinois Prairie Path and their special connection.

Phil Eichas presented four spectacular images of baby swans to view and discuss; and he also presented three images which he asked other members to critique. This was a success – Phil came away with a unanimous decision on the best image to frame. It was also special to see Phil’s family join in on the evening which we sensed made Phil very proud.

Show & Tell launched its first Technology session which featured Keith & Margaret Larson from PJ’s Camera who demonstrated and answered questions about lighting accessories such as portable diffusers, flash diffusers and LED ring lights for macro photography. Also on display was additional macro equipment such as focusing rails, close-up filters, extension tubes, compact tripods, and even cleaning accessories for field use. We are thankful for PJ’s contribution to our Show & Tell night and encourage all to visit PJ’s Camera & Photo Supply for further information.
