Wildflower Macrophotography Workshop

August 22, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

**Registration for this event is filled to capacity and now closed.**


Join professional scientific photographer, Ellen Woods, and Great Hollow’s newest research scientist, Dr. Robert Clark, to learn about Connecticut’s native wildflowers and how to capture their beauty with macrophotography. We’ll walk Great Hollow’s main grounds and the beginning of the Red Trail in search of wildflowers, and then learn the best techniques for taking professional-quality macrophotographs for scientific and educational purposes. Beginners are welcome and no special equipment is required. The program will begin at 10 am in front of the Merritt House (click here for campus map). The wildflower walk and photography demonstration will each be approximately an hour in length. Free for members; a suggested donation of $10 per person for non-members is greatly appreciated. Please register in advance by emailing us at .

Ellen Woods is a PhD Candidate at Wesleyan University where she is currently studying the effects of environmental change on plant evolution. Her photography of plants and the insects that feed on them has been highlighted on multiple scientific journal covers, by NPR and the Washington Post, and in the book “Monarchs and Milkweeds.” You can view some of her work here.
