Save the date. Saturday March 26th at 2:00 PM. Gary Parr will be giving a photography work shop at Reefs Aquatics in Green Bay Wi. Reef2Reefers already know Gary is one of the best coral photographers in the midwest, if not the country. The Alternative Reef and Reefs Aquatics are proud to bring him to Northwest Wisconsin to share his secrets to amazing photo's. He'll also be there after to give you little tips and pointers after the show. So bring your cameras and prepare to take lots of pictures. You might ask yourself......OK how much is this gonna cost me. The answer is zip, zero, nada. Reefs and The Alternative Reef have been talking for some time about doing something special for the area reefers for awhile now. We have decided on small little workshops designed to enhance your reefkeeping experience. We plan to do something like this either semi annually or quarterly if it is well recieved. This is our way of giving back. Now Reefs is a small place. We ask that you stop in and or give them a call to let them know you are planning on going. It would be nice to have an idea of how big this will be. If a lot of people respond we will try to have the workshop in the vacant store next door to give us more room. I will post the address and phone number later. They are closed on mondays. Hope to see you there. Scott Here is a little write up Gary has provided for us. HowÂ¹d You Shoot That? Your reef is thriving, the colors are beautiful, and you want some photos to share the fruits of your labor with friends and family. You break out the camera, fire off a few shots, and end up with blue, blurred, and distorted photos, half of which are ruined when the light from your flash unit reflected off of the aquarium glass. Frustration sets in and you ask the inevitable question: How do I get decent shots of my reef? "HowÂ¹d You Shoot That?" will show you what equipment you need and don't need, how to get the proper exposure, and what makes for good photo composition. You'll also learn how to photograph fish, get quality full-tank shots, and shoot corals, all of the way down to the feeding tentacles. Â³HowÂ¹d You Shoot That?Â² is presented by Gary Parr, a self-taught advanced-amateur photographer who "specializes" in close-up/macro photography of corals, flowers, and insects.
