- Photographing Lighthouses by Mike Collins
When people think of great places to visit lighthouses, they naturally envision places like Maine or Oregon. However, Michigan has the largest number of lighthouses of all the states, so you're well-placed to find great lighthouses to shoot! In this presentation, we'll cover tips on how to photograph lighthouses, many of which can be applied to other subjects. The discussion will cover a number of examples from around the Great Lakes, and wrap up with some resources for learning more about lighthouses and how to get to them.
Bio - Mike Collins
Mike Collins works as a systems analyst for a major insurance company in the Lansing area. He is also an avid amateur photographer who still manages to sell a few pictures here and there. He has been photographing lighthouses for a dozen years, mostly in Michigan. Even so, he still has a lot of ground (and water) to cover before he's taken pictures of all the Michigan lighthouses! You can view his pictures at http://mwcollinsphoto.zenfolio.com, and feel free to look me up on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/#!/profile.php?id=100003695540796).
