Photographing Butterflies

Butterflies are one of the most beautiful creatures in nature, but getting a good shot of one can sometimes feel a little less graceful. Capturing a butterfly doesn’t have to be so difficult, and you don’t even need a net! Come along with us to the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory and learn the basics for capturing great photos of butterflies and flowers.

Course Outline:

- Overview of shooting modes
- Macro technique fundamentals
- Understanding DOF in close up photography
- Controlling exposure and colour
- Creative composition

This class includes a comprehensive student notes package, which is made available following the class. A cheat sheet of settings and techniques will be provided prior to the class taking place for reference during the class.
While Flash may be used in the conservatory, the topic will not be covered by your instructor.

My family took me here for our 40th wedding anniversary. it is a stunning spot and then to have all these beautiful creatures to photograph is an absolute bonus. everywhere you look there is the most beautiful colours You start to follow one and end up on an entirely different path. Having someone give you hands on lessons on the spot would be the best and easiest way to learn how to use your camera new or old. LOVED THE SPOT!

I enjoyed the morning at the conservatory. Prefer this type of class instead of a classroom.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Photographing Butterflies course/tour! Having never been to the conservatory before I was super excited but didn?t know what to expect. To have access for 2 hours before it opened to the public was amazing. Our group was fairly small so it was more like having a one on one private tutor. Brendan was fantastic, he made sure all of us could ask any questions and he provided feedback and suggestions the entire time. I also found it a bonus to have a chance to try various Sigma macro lenses. Loved it so much I stayed 2 more hours after the class, and walked out with so many amazing photos. Absolutely stunning, and learned lots.
