Some from the local conservatory

  1. As you may know all of our outdoor flowers are covered with snow here in Thunder Bay..so I headed out to the local conservatory with the 70-200 vr and Canon 500 D combo...This is my first outing with this combo...so critiques are not only appreciated but solicitated...

    Bob,
    We do not have your snow problem in my area but I often go to the local conservatory anyway - the weather is always good there and that glass dome above you is like a giant diffuser that softens the light on your subjects. Ours has some informal greenhouses outback that are the same situation. Visiting is allowed and I am often the only one there - how great is that? No one kicking my tripod! Suggest you check to see if you have the same. One hint: if they have automatic sprinklers on a timer carry something to cover your equipment.
