This past weekend, I took a class on wildflower photography at the North House Folk School in Grand Marais. I’ve wanted to take a class at the school for some time, and this course on using macro-lenses to photograph wildflowers on the North Shore seemed a perfect fit.
Our instructor was Bryan Hansel, a local photographer who has taken some amazing images of the rugged beauty of the area around Grand Marais. We were a diverse group of photographers, from fellows who have been shooting for more than 50 years to relative newbies. This was my first time using a macro (closeup) lens, so I had a lot to learn, but what a great way to do it! Above is a gallery of some of the images I took. Click any image for a larger view.
Thanks Bryan and North House for a great experience!
