Subject: MARS Photography Evening.
Digital Entries only please.
Note: At our October meeting, Program Chair Glen Jamieson announced a new and fun idea for the photographers amongst us – a Photo Night for us to share pics of our gardens. Here’s what to do. 1. Email your digital photos to Glen at: Glenj02@yahoo.ca with “MARS Photo night” in the subject line. Glen will prepare a PowerPoint presentation with all entries.
2. Email instructions. On the subject line, please enter the category the photo is intended for and the name of the rhododendron or plant or scene, if known. This is not a contest, and pictures you took that showcase your garden or plants, special photos that you took on garden tours or in someone else’s garden, etc. are all welcome.
3. Categories 1. Single Rhododendron Truss 2. Whole Rhododendron Plant 3. Foliage Rhododendron 4. Companion Plant 5. Garden Scene 6. Creative/Artistic photos altered by technology NOTE: Please enter only two photos per category. Deadline for submitting digital photos is Jan 1, 2017.
4. Participants are welcome to explain what their photos mean to them when they are presented…if they wish.
