Learn to find and photograph the miniature wildlife in your backyard, garden or nearby prairie. We will work on the tools and techniques needed to get closer to small creatures from ants to butterflies, and other small creatures. We will also cover when to use natural light and when and how to use flash for better exposures. Suggested equipment is a zoom lens that goes to 200 or 300mm and extension tubes or a macro lens 100mm or longer. A flash unit for your camera and an off camera TTL flash cord will be helpful.
