Exploring Cylburn Arboretum

Exploring Cylburn Arboretum

Cylburn Arboretum is a little known gem within the city of Baltimore.  Once owned by an industrial magnate it is now managed as a partnership between the city of Baltimore and the Cylburn Association.  It is now a gorgeous park with many different photo opportunities.  We will begin by shooting the exterior of the mansion before venturing out into the formal and informal garden areas.  The field shoot will end with a walk on one of the many easy trails through the woods to give you the full flavor of the park.

Recommended Equipment: A DSLR or mirrorless camera with a range of lenses from 24mm to 200mm, a macro lens, if you have one. Tripods are recommended but not required.
