About the event:

Event cost: $99 – but you need to pay $12 cash for entry fee on the day.

This workshop is designed for photographers looking to extend their macro photographic technique beyond the basics. With unlimited access to tens of thousands of fast moving butterflies, you will be challenged to think quickly to capture that 'one in a million' shot. We will spend 1 hour discussing advanced macro photography technique in a small group to maximise the learning outcome. Shooting time will be two hours to explore and apply the theory in the Bribie Butterfly house.

Topics covered:

• Advanced EOS Focus and Metering techniques
• Canon Flash on Camera
• Exposure, Settings and Creative Choices
• Introduction to Focus Stacking (Hand Held)
• Composition

There is an expectation that you will already have a beginner level understanding of Macro photography.
