Field Trip to Beth Fabey's

If you would like to join in on a field trip to Beth Fabey's place to photograph flowers from her  gardens as well as some still life set-ups on Sat., OCT. 23, 2021, at 2:00 p.m., please contact  Beth at as soon as possible to let her know so that she knows how  much prep she needs to do. 

All work will be outside as Beth is not yet opening up the house to visitors.... She hopes to have  a number of stations set up outside so that those who wish to socially distance can do so. 

Perhaps we could order pizza delivery for an early dinner to spend some time socializing when  we are done photographing. (Bring a lawn chair.) 

To see some images of Beth's gardens, follow this link FieldTripBethFabey.pdf

The following flowers will still be in bloom. (See attached snapshots for examples): Gardens: 



Double Autumn Rouge and Autumn Carnation azaleas 

Angel Wing begonias 


Multi-colored "Scarlet Sage" 

Fall crocus 


Montauk Daisies 

Deck pots: 

Tropical hibiscus 




Double impatiens 

Penta (which bumblebees and butterflies love) 

The flowers can be shot in place or she can also pick flowers and put in vases on tables. She has  a backdrop stand as well as clotheslines if you would like to bring a backdrop or sheets to drape,  as well as any props you might want to bring to set up for still lifes. Beth can supply some items  but a variety of choices would be better. 

If you have a tabletop background stand and fabric for tabletops, please bring those as well. She has a macro rail if you would like to experiment with that. 

Please respond as soon as possible to to let Beth Fabey know if you  would like to come.

Hope to see you there!
