Location: Learning Campus Classroom #1, Chicago Botanic Garden

NOTE: This is a change from our usual meeting room due to the Night of 1000 Jack-O-Lanterns event at the Garden. They are expecting large crowds for this event, so parking may be limited and it may take longer than usual to get in. You may want to come a little earlier than usual. Note: Parking Lot 6 is closest to the Learning Center.

The Garden Photographic Society is hosting a special program featuring an ambassador/educator from Olympus. This is not going to be a sales pitch but an informative learning session. The program will include some time for shooting. (Helix Camera will be there with some Olympus cameras and lenses for us to try out).

The presentation will be from 7:30-8:30, then we shoot outside from about 8:30-9:30PM.

All members, guests and interested photographers in Chicagoland (no matter what equipment you use) are welcome and there is no charge.

Hope to see you then.
