FYI - the Mitchell Park Domes in Milwaukee is offering a class on flower and plant photography 0n 4/2 and 4/09 from 930-123-. The cost is $25 and it is taught by a UWM photo instructor.You can more info by calling the Mitchell Park Domes gift shop. It sounds interesting to me and I think I'll go. I believe you have to register ahead of time.

I saw this in the paper on Sunday...I think I may look into it, too! I love those domes! :)

Thanks for the reminder! I hope some other 'cheesehead' APUGers can make it, too!

I went to the class. I enjoyed it and made some good contacts with other photographers. There were some very talented people there. The instructor was good .There was probably too much talking and not enough shooting but on the whole it was a valuable experience. They may offer similar classes in the future.

I hope so! I did "watch the sick grandkids" duty so I missed it. :(

Cool, David! You should post it in the New Mexico regional thread! I'll bet that would be nice to see, though!

The University of Wisconsin Wakesha is offering several continuing education courses in photgraphy.e are mostly 3 day classes. They include classes in flower photo. landscape photo. nature photo. and a trip to the Upper Peninsula to photograph waterfalls. The latter 2 interest me a lot. Is anyone else interested? Their web site is www.aukesha.ce

I'm signed up for that waterfall class. I took it in the fall last year and had a great time! I'm excited about going in early summer this year!
You thinking about taking it Suzuki??? That'd be cool! Always nice to be able to meet a fellow APUGer!

I'd like to take the waterfall class but I'm not sure at this point if I can get away. I think I'll take the nature photo class and if that goes well, maybe sign up for the waterfall class later. Wasn't there a get together a few months ago in Milwaukee? Perhaps another one can be arranged this spring and we can all meet.

How about a report on the Waterfall class? Get any good shots? Unfortunately, the Nature photo class was cancelled.

It was great! The weather was perfect and I think I managed to get a few good shots. I posted two in the Critique Gallery a couple minutes ago. We went to some falls in WI on our way to & from the UP (Dells of the Eau Claire on the way up & Copper falls on the way down). ;) We went to I think at least 8 separate sites... including Bond Falls and Presque Isle park (which has at least 4 falls)...in the 3 days we were gone. It's pretty much dead-serious photo shoot... no picnics in the park or whatever. We are up at 6am, and get back around 6 or 7pm. It's good! :)

Tonight is the last class for this. He will critique our photos. I am the only B&W shooter (same as last time), but I think I have a better selection this time around.

Last fall was a wee bit 'brutal'... but not so bad considering that I had no clue about a good many things! haha :D

Sorry the nature class was cancelled. Check UW-Waukesha's website... I know they offer many short photo-shooting classes.

There will possibly be another waterfall class in the Fall. I'll keep you updated on it.

since i am not a subscriber, i can't enlarge your shots but the small ones in the gallery look very nice. I'll consider taking the course in the fall. BTW, there is going to be a civil war encampment at the menomonee falls old village on july 16-17. That should be a great opportunity for photography.

Cool! I'd probably have to just take my Hassy there! (no batteries) ;)

BTW- the instructor said the fall waterfall class will be the first weekend of October... which means September 30 & Oct. 1&2. There is a class...usually the Tuesday before, so he can tell everyone new what to expect & transportation can be decided. Then, we get back together for the 'last class' the Tuesday of the next week after we return.

I may check out that Civil war thing. :)

Another interesting thing at Old Falls Village is the Steichen house. The house that Edward Steichen lived in when he was a Menomonee Falls resident has been moved to the village. An interesting bit of photographic history.
