at Thanksgiving Point – April 28, 2012
For this month’s Photowalk, we’ll be revisiting Thanksgiving Point Gardens during their most popular event: the Tulip Festival. If you’ve never been before, get ready for a real feast of beauty! Since the late afternoon or early evening seems to be the best light for this location, we’re going to be meeting later than usual. As always, this is open to photographers of any skill level so come join us and feed your passion for great picture opportunities!
Tulip Festival Information:
Thanksgiving Point is also holding a Photo Contest for amateur photographers. You can get all the details here: http://www.thanksgivingpoint.com/calendar/events/tulipfestival/photocontest.html
Where: Thanksgiving Point Gardens. Meet at the front entrance to the Gardens.
When: Saturday April 28th from 4:30pm -6:30 pm. You are welcome to stay after and enjoy the Gardens until they close at 8:00pm
Price: $8.00 per person. In order to get this discounted price, we MUST pay with a single transaction. Please bring the exact cash amount if you want to participate in the discount. Otherwise, you will need to pay the normal fee of $10.00 per person.
IMPORTANT: There are a few things you will need to know that are specific to this location so please read the notes below and make sure everyone that comes with you is aware of them.
· There is no portrait photography allowed inside the Gardens unless you pay the $100 fee. I’ve been told that if it looks like you are posing for a photograph, (or shooting it) you will have to pay that fee.
· The PRO photographer fee is $500 and must be paid in advance. For those who might not know what this means, you are NOT allowed to sell any picture you take inside the Gardens without paying this fee.
To clarify these last two: the shots we take can certainly be used on the Photowalking website and Facebook page with no problem. You can certainly take photos of other photowalkers, but any set up and posed photos will fall more under the portrait requirement.
See you there!
See you there!
