NEXT MEETING - BRS PROGRAM ON ROSE PHOTOGRAPHY BY DAVE COOP on August 27, 2019.

 

Dave Coop, president of the Sacramento Rose Society, has graciously accepted our invitation to speak to our society about photographing roses using our cell phones. With the weather cooling off in the next couple of months, our roses should be ideal for taking photos, especially if you want to try your hand at entering the Fall Rose Show Photography Divisions.


We can consider Dave an expert in photographing roses and in judging roses. He won the Photography Best of Show award at the 2018 ARS Fall Convention in San Diego with a photo of ‘Lyda Rose’. Congratulations Dave!

His program will focus on taking “winning” photos with your cell phone cameras, providing pointers on what the Photography Judges look for in a photo, and how you can increase your chances of entering winning photos. He is also bringing photo “mounts and mats” to demonstrate how to properly mount 8 x 10 photos. You are encouraged to bring your 8 x 10 photos. He will select up to 10 members' photos and provide the mounts/mats/tape to let them mount their photos and keep the mats. We can have a “Practice Photo Show”.

In 1991 Dave joined Gold Country Rose Society and was motivated to pursue his passion for growing roses. Since then, he became an ARS Consulting Rosarian in 1996 and was awarded Master Rosarian status in 2015. He also enjoys being an exhibitor and has been an ARS Horticultural Judge since 2000. World travel is another of his pursuits in honor of the rose. He has attended World Federation of Rose Societies Conferences (held every three years) in British Columbia (2009), South Africa (2012), and France (2015). Dave is also chairing the NCNH 2019 District Conference that will be held in Auburn.

For more information regarding any of the scheduled events, please contact:  Sandy Anderson, Program Director, at sandychico@gmail.com.

If you want to be a part of our friendly group, our yearly dues are only $25 and $5 for any additional member of that household. See our Application on this website for registration.
