In addition, we will tools and accessories that will help you in capturing better images and discuss composition, and exposure value.

 

Sunday’s Workshop at the Butterfly Pavilion will be led by Mike’s Camera staff members Mike Dobson and Brian Rabin. Working with Brian and Mike, you’ll have the opportunity to photograph insects and arachnids in the “Crawl–a-see-em” area, the marine invertebrates living in the Water’s Edge or one of the 1600 live butterflies or 200 plant species in the 7,200 square-foot Tropical Rainforest; Wings of the Tropics.
