There is a photography workshop coming up at Maplewood Nature Center that I thought I would pass on to the camera club members. The information is as follows:
CAPTURING INSECTS THROUGH YOUR CAMERA
Saturday, August 17, 9 am-Noon
Learn the secrets of photographing bugs close-up from expert photographer Bill Johnson. Bring your camera on a ‘bug hunt’ around Maplewood nature center’s native gardens as you learn how to take successful insect photos using your own equipment. Take away tips, resources and photographic techniques as well as where and how to look for insect subjects.
View photographic print examples as the end result of the photographic techniques that have been discussed.
Bill Johnson’s insect photography has been published in over 800 publications. He writes the column ‘Insect ID’ for Horticulture Magazine.
