1:00 - 3:30 pm - Macrophotography Workshop with Ward Strong  

Ward Strong will talk about taking pics of little things: how he does it (for interest’s sake), and how farmers, consultants and others might do it for diagnosis and information purposes. He will look at what’s important in taking close-up pics, with special reference to cell phones and point-and-shoot cameras, and then allow people to try their hand at taking pics of little things.  This is a hands-on workshop.  Bring your camera or cell phone.

Note: This is not about taking pics of microscopic things, which are like mites, fungal spores, bacteria. It will focus on larger things like insects and disease symptoms
