Join others to enhance your skills and expand your botanical portfolio! This workshop allows students an exclusive opportunity to get up-close and personal with the wonders of beautiful tropical orchids! In-class time will be spent learning DSLR techniques to create stunning macro images of the orchids, including tips on focus, lighting with and without flashes, background, and composition. The Conservatory will then close to the public for one hour, allowing exclusive access for class participants who will enjoy private, hands-on shooting time to explore through a macro lens. Participants will gain confidence in their macro skills and will have the unique opportunity to photograph the orchids during class without photo permit restrictions nor the feeling of being crowded by public visitors.
