Join Chris Smith and me on Wednesday, August 6th for a private photo shoot at the Chicago Botanic Garden Butterflies and Blooms exhibition. We are renting out the space before it opens from 8-9:30am. Join us at 7:45am outside the exhibition for some quick butterfly photography tips from me before we start the shoot. You can stay longer after the exhibit opens to the public to continue shooting (no tripods allowed after opening, however). Cost of shoot gets you into the Garden as well, so stay all day and photograph the lush and beautiful gardens!
To cover the cost of the rental, it is only $20 a person to join the group, which we will limit to 15 people. If you would like to join us, email Chris at [email protected] for payment details. Here's the link to the the announcement on Chris Smith's 'Out of Chicago' website.
Here are a few of the butterflies I've been photographing recently in the exhibit...
Pink Rose Butterfly
Male Mocker Swallowtail Butterfly
White Morpho Butterfly Common Lacewing Butterfly
Pearl Charaxes Butterfly
