Utah State University’s Intermountain Herbarium offers the public workshop, “Plant Photography,” Saturday, July 7. The day-long gathering, geared to amateur photographers who enjoy the region’s summer wildflowers, includes a walking trek through Logan Canyon.
Jointly hosted by the Cache Chapter of the Utah Native Plants Society, the workshop features speaker Stephen Hegji, author of Wasatch Wildflowers: A Field Guide.
“We’ll meet on the USU campus and travel up Logan Canyon for an easy walk and an opportunity to try the photography techniques we’ve learned,” says Michael Piep, assistant curator at the herbarium. “In the afternoon, we’ll compare efforts and receive additional advice. Participants may use any type of digital camera they wish to bring.”
The workshop begins at 9 a.m. in Room 301 of the Geology building on the USU Logan campus. During the day, participants will carpool to a hiking site in Logan Canyon and return to campus. The workshop concludes at 4 p.m.
