This 3 hour workshop will be conducted over Zoom with live on-screen video and graphics in an interactive webinar format. The instructor will explain and demonstrate successful strategies, special techniques, camera settings, lighting and compositional considerations, tools and tricks, and planning tips for capturing artistic and unusually spectacular photos of Hummingbirds, Butterflies, and Flower blooms. Particular emphasis will be placed on equipment choices, photographer positioning, and shooting-angles/perspectives to create imagery with maximum artistic and emotional impact. Video-guided demonstrations and exercises will include simulated outdoor situations (using artificial butterflies, blooms, hummingbirds and other props) for photographic practice by participants using their own equipment at home in real-time, as guided by the instructor via Zoom. Various methods and devices involving the use of flash, reflectors, diffusers, feeders/attractants, motion detectors, and camera mounting devices (e.g., tripods, etc.) will be discussed, debated, and evaluated.
