Butterflies & Flowers, Plus Lightroom Bonus

Two of nature's most beautiful creations, butterflies and flowers, come together in this exciting workshop. Join me at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens, rated among the Top 4 Most Beautiful Botanical Gardens in the U.S. by Conde Nast, USA Today, The Travel Channel, and the BBC. It is truly a hidden gem, located in Richmond, Virginia.

The butterflies are housed in the beautiful Conservatory with wonderful light. Dozens of species will flit past us in a constantly changing air ballet. Many consider butterflies to be flowers that fly.

In addition to these winged beauties, there are acres and acres of tended gardens all around us. Each day will be a mixture of flowers and butterflies. Learn how to successfully photograph butterflies, and learn creative macro techniques for artistic flower images. Plus an added bonus - time each day will be devoted to improving your working knowledge of Lightroom, with a little Photoshop tossed into the mix.
