May Meeting Features Hands-on Demo of Light Box Photography
The next meeting of the Coastal Carolina Camera Club will be May 12 at Shallotte Presbyterian Church. Our May program will be Still Life photography. Several light boxes will be set up with objects to photograph, giving members an opportunity to practice photographing in light boxes. Club members should be sure to bring their cameras. Our objective is to provide an environment where members work together and to promote sharing of photography tips and tricks. Images from this program will be presented at our June Meeting.

| Bald Head Island May 4 (Rain date one week later, May 11)
Bald Head Island off the coast from Southport is a favorite of CCCC members and a special tour led by the Bald Head Conservancy Education Staff has been arranged for May 4. A rain date for one week later has also been set aside. Bald Head has been designated an "Important Bird Area" by the Audubon Society due to its great diversity of species. Following the tour, you'll be able to explore the Island at your own pace. The cost is $60 per person, which includes the cost of the ferry. The photo tour led by the Conservancy staff is limited to 16, so don't delay getting your check into Aline Harrel. For complete information on the day, click here.
Brookgreen Gardens Trip June 22
CCCC will be taking a trip to Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, SC. During this time of year, the very photogenic water lilies should be in bloom, as well as hydrangeas and other flowers. In addition to plant and flower gardens, Brookgreen offers other subjects of interest, such as sculptures, fountains, butterfly house and low country zoo.
We will meet at the garden at 9:45am or at the Little River Lowes Food parking lot near the ATM machine at 8:45am to car pool. The price for entry is $20 for adults up to 64 years old and $18 for seniors 65+. It is recommended that you purchase your ticket in advance on line. The ticket won’t expire for several days, so you don’t have to wait until the last minute to purchase. It also should remain valid if we have to end up going on our rain date of June 24th. Go to brookgreen.org and click on the yellow box that says “purchase tickets”.
Around noon, we will have lunch at the nearby Dead Dog Saloon along the Marsh Walk. There will be photo ops there as well. Please contact Michelle Tinger at email@example.com by June 15th to let her know if you plan to go on this field trip and if you plan on joining us for lunch, so that she can make reservations.
