U of A Professor Emeritus and Nature Photographer from the Photograph Society of Northwest Arkansas Come to Hobbs State Park to Offer a Free Beginner’s Only Wildflower Photography Class/Shoot

If you are just beginning to shoot photos of wildflowers/Nature and want some great tips, you will want to attend the lecture and photoshoot coming to Hobbs State Park.   This program is not for the professional…beginners only please.  Don’t be bashful, or self-conscience because you don’t have a 3-foot long lens on your camera.  You don’t need it.  That’s not what this program is about.  It truly is for novices, greenhorns, and rookies.

Start the program with a stunning display of our local, native wildflowers presented by Rose Gergerich, professor emeritus of Department of Plant Pathology from the University of Arkansas.  Gergerich will not only show the most common wildflowers, but will add a few beauties not often seen.  She will bring some live wildflowers with her, and some lucky program attendees will take them home free.

Cleeo Wright, Nature Photographer with the Photographic Society of Northwest Arkansas (PSNWA), will then talk about Beginning Wildflower/Nature Photography.  Afterwards it’s outside where he will help all participants identify wildflower “subjects” around the visitor center, and how best to photograph them with the camera that you bring.  This will be your program.  You ask the specific questions so you will get the specific knowledge that you are seeking as a wildflower/Nature Photography learner.  Don’t pass up this extraordinary opportunity to learn basic wildflower photography from a professional in that field.

Note:  Participants need to be familiar with the basic functions of their camera.  The lecture will help you understand how to utilize the functions your camera has to offer.  

Where:  Hobbs State Park visitor center located on Hwy 12 just east of the Hwy. 12/War Eagle Road intersection.

When:    Saturday June 30, 2018

Time:     Program begins at 3:30 pm

Cost:       Free:  The public is invited.

For more information, call:  479-789-5000   

This program is a cooperative effort between the Photographic Society of Northwest Arkansas, Hobbs State Park, and Rose Gergerich.  To learn more about the PSNWA and upcoming Hobbs State Park programs, go to: https://www.psnwa.org/ws/ and http://www.friendsofhobbs.com/  and  www.ArkansasStateParks.com/hobbsstateparkconservationarea
