Butterfly Pavilion Photo Workshop

Experience the jungle here in Colorado…

Big Sun Photography is excited to start hosting macro / close-up photography workshops at the Westminster Butterfly Pavilion here in Colorado. Classes will be held approximately every 3 months. This is a truly unique opportunity not only to learn the basic skills needed for macro photography in the field, but to enjoy and photograph the stunning variety of insects and flora found at the Butterfly Pavilion. We have the “Rainforest Conservatory” privately reserved after hours just for our workshop. Therefore, lots of space and quiet for everyone to capture their photos. The Rain forest Conservatory houses over 1,600 live butterflies along with a wide variety of other fauna and flora.

Who should take this class:

  • Anyone wanting to capture nature up close with macro and close up techniques.
  • You do require a basic understanding of your camera to take this course. This is not a beginner course.
Butterfly Pavilion Workshop Outline


1 hrs classroom instruction
2 hrs field instruction in the Rain forest Conservatory


Topics include:

  • Understanding macro/close-up techniques
  • Depth of field extremes
  • Dealing with motion
  • Macro lighting – field techniques
  • Homemade macro tools
  • Macro equipment overviews
  • Important Note: This class will focus on “field skills”. It does not tackle complex lighting or advanced post production techniques specific to macro.

Prerequisites:

  • This workshop assumes you have a working knowledge of your camera’s functions and understand the basics of exposure and depth of field. This is the wrong workshop to learn basics for the first time.
  • A macro lens AND/OR strong telephoto lens (200mm minimum).

Why learn macro? It is difficult these days to produce a truly unique image. It seems that anything and everything you capture with your camera has already been done a thousand times on photography websites worldwide. Enter the world of Macro Photography. Regardless of where you live there are thousands of amazing AND UNIQUE images to capture only yards from your door. It’s an entirely new world when you’re up close.

IMPORTANT NOTE!: An additional $11 entry fee is required by the Butterfly Pavilion upon entry. Since you are already paying to get in, you might as well come early and enjoy more of the pavilion before the class begins.
