Colleen Miniuk-Sperry and Paul Gill will make a special presentation at The Well Red Coyote on Friday, March 30, at 7 p.m., about the when, where and how of photographing wildflowers in Arizona.
Miniuk-Sperry and Gill are professional photographers and the co-authors of the recently published photo guidebook, Wild Arizona: Photographing Arizona's Wildflowers - A Guide to When, Where and How.
Using the photography featured in the book as examples, both from renowned outdoor photographers and as well as Miniuk-Sperry and Gill, attendees will learn:
About practical resources to help predict when and where the wildflower, cactus, shrub, and tree blooms will occur throughout Arizona.
Wildflower-specific techniques for capturing memorable landscape and macro photographs of this ephemeral event no matter the location.
Notable locations near Sedona and across Arizona that bloom first so you can put your new "poppy-razzi" skills to work this spring!
