A Face Book Page, “NGC Photographers” will feature monthly themes and challenges and will allow for critiques of posted photos by committee and members. Helpful tips will be accessible as a resource for exhibiting and taking photographs.
Blogs will be geared toward the novice. Staging photography in the Botanical Arts Division of a Flower Show will be addressed as well. https://gardenclub.org/flower-show-school
