February 19, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. – Ron Long presents “The Beauty and Challenge of Flower Photography” (Their beauty is the challenge)
“I have given many talks that included hundreds of my wildflower photographs from around the world. This talk is a little different. I’m billing it as an instructional talk on how to make great flower photos and it will include tips that will be helpful to photographers. However the real purpose of this talk is to provide an excuse for me to present a collection of my very best flower photographs, most of which have not been seen before now. Non-photographer plant lovers and those who appreciate the beauty, art and design of nature will find much to enjoy.”
