With butterflies in the Nicholas Conservatory, it’s a great opportunity to photograph some of the most colorful insects around. During the lecture portion of the class, we will discuss macro concepts and equipment, and focus on the challenges associated with fast-moving small subjects. Photography of the butterflies will be in the conservatory.

Suggested equipment: DSLR or mirrorless camera, flash with off camera cord (unless your camera is equipped to fire flash wirelessly), macro or close focusing lens. Cell phone cameras welcome, but not all classroom info will apply. Tripod is NOT needed.

Ages 16+

Pre-registration required.

NCG members: $28
