The Out of Chicago Summer Conference is quickly approaching. I'm excited to be teaching two Lensbaby classes during the weekend conference: "Unleash Your Creative Spirit: Creating Beautiful Flower Portraits with Lensbaby." We also have a Shootout scheduled for Saturday and Sunday where the Lensbaby reps and I will be available to loan out lenses to shoot a variety of flowers, as well as provide instruction in their use. Learn more about the conference and the amazing line-up of instructors here. You can use my special code BELMONT50 to receive $50 off the weekend conference price.
I am also excited to doing a pre-conference workshop on Thursday, June 21, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., at Garfield Park Conservatory. Garfield is located just west of the Loop and the conference center. Spend the day photographing the treasures of Garfield Park Conservatory with me and our Lensbaby reps. This is one of my favorite places to photograph year-round – from the Fern Room with its primeval, misty ferns unfolding, the Desert House filled with cacti and succulents to the 12 acres of outdoor summer gardens and a waterlily pool – we will have many interesting subjects to practice our macro and close-up photography skills and discover the creative possibilities of shooting with Lensbaby lenses. Lensbaby reps will be accompanying us to loan out lenses and provide instruction. We will have a classroom at Garfield for storing our gear as well as gathering for lunch, which is included in the price, and some instructional time.
There are only two spots left in this small workshop. You can check out the details and register here.
Hope to see you at the conference! This is one of my favorite events of the year. The Out of Chicago conferences are like no other. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to email me through this site.
