Iris Photography & How to Enter the AIS Photo Contest – LIS Meeting June 30, 2014

Calling all shutterbugs, or aspiring shutterbugs!  This month’s program is for you. Stan Sass will present a program on the art of iris photography and how to showcase your skill by entering the American Iris Society Photo Contest.  He has entered the AIS Photo Contest several times, and won eight or nine honorable mentions.  His first award was for a photo of an Allan Ensminger introduction, Gladys My Love. Last year, he won three awards with photos of Gypsy Lord, Sunray Reflection and Jean’s Garden.  The latter appeared on the back cover of the Irises Bulletin.

Date: Monday, June 30, 2014 Time: 6:00 PM
Location: St. Andrews Lutheran Church 1015 Lancaster Lane, Lincoln, NE
Program: Iris Photography & How to Enter the AIS Photo Contest—presented by Stan Sass

Just a reminder! There is a potluck supper at the June meeting. It begins at 6:00 PM! So, bring a dish to share with the group (appetizer, entrée, salad, side-dish, dessert, etc.) If you don’t cook, something from your favorite deli or eatery is fine.  Coffee, a cold drink and ice water will be provided.  Also bring your own tableware ( plate,napkin, silverware, etc.) The program and then a short business meeting will follow the potluck.

Thank you to these irisarians for opening their gardens to us:

  • Gary White and Linda Rader
  • Jean Pedersen
  • Dottie Ladman
  • Jenny and Mark Cich
  • Dean and Judy Douglas
  • David and Marjorie Lionberger

You can read more about these gardens and the meeting in the upcoming Regional Newsletter where we have six authors each reviewing one of the gardens.
