Macro Photography with Mike's Camera

How do you capture all of the fine details and vibrant colors when doing Macro Photography? Join us for this three-part workshop where our instructors will teach you how to capture spectacular detail and colors in your Butterfly and Flower Macro Photography images.‍

Begin this workshop from the comfort of your own home with our Virtual Online Part 1 instruction by Brian Rabin, one of Mike’s Camera educators. This is followed by a morning instructional workshop in the beautiful setting of Butterfly Pavilion where we will split up into small groups, each group with its own guide and instructor, and culminates at a virtual follow-up critique and review session to share your favorite images.

We will have exclusive access to Butterfly Pavilion for an hour before they open and will end the practical session with a private photography opportunity.
