Photographing Orchids presented by  
David Wasserman

Ok, so you’ve learned to grow your charges, and by golly, you beam with pride! 
Now, how about a photograph, to preserve the lovelies, or to even to brag. 
Photographing flowers isn’t as easy as you’d like it to be. Our speaker this July, David Wasserman is going to help sort that out. His lecture is entitled: “WHY IS POTOGRAPHING AN ORCHID SO DIFFICULT? - Ways to make it a lot easier”. 

Dave has been a professional photographer for over 30 years, mostly specializing in scientific and technical areas. Originally, he was trained as a biologist, and initially learned both photography and cinematography to help with research on animal behavior studies. In the early 1980s, he transitioned from biological consulting to freelance photography and has been there ever since. Besides working on both assignments and personal work, he has taught at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco for over a decade. He primarily teaches conceptual classes along with color theory. Areas of photographic expertise are macro/micro photography, lighting on location, and landscape photography. His work can be seen at his web site, cactitransects.com, and at GettyImages.com. He is presently in the final stages of publishing a macrophotography book on ROCKS. 

Speaker’s Dinner will be at 5:30 at the Sichuan Fortune House, 41 Woodsworth Ln. in Pleasant Hill.  Everyone is welcome to attend and meet our speakers before the meeting. Call George McRae at  (510) 233-7374 if you can join us, so that you can be included in the reservation.

Plant Table will be provided by Tropical Orchid Farm
