DESCRIPTION: Let’s take pictures of nature at the Mercer Arboretum and Botanic Gardens (over 250 acres) are county botanical gardens with an arboretum and natural areas. The gardens include an Azalea trail, hills, a Bald Cypress Pond, a Bamboo Garden, an Endangered Species Garden, an Herb Garden, a Hickory Bog, the Jake Roberts Maple Collection, the Post Oak Uplands, a Prehistoric Garden, a Rock Garden, the William D. Lee Iris Collection, Perennial Gardens, a Tropical Garden, a playground, picnic tables, walking paths, and a gift shop. The Mercer Arboretum and Botanic Gardens is a perfect venue to test out your metering and Aperture Priority skills for nature photography. You can also bring a guest so you can test out pictures of people with beautiful flowers decorating your background. If you have a reflector this can be a great occasion to use it. If you have a Macro lens this will be your best friend for capturing the most detailed shots of flowers and portraits. A 50mm lens also works very well if you do not own a macro lens. Please arrive 15 minutes early so we can all talk about our camera settings beforehand.Read more
