This is a special event, a Mike Moats Macro Boot Camp, with Mike Mathew's Frogs and Reptiles coming in on Sunday for three hours.  It's a two day event with Mike Moats lecturing on Saturday, along with shooting subjects on table tops, and Sunday you will have three hours to shoot the frogs and reptiles, and more table top subjects.

 

Equipment needed.  DSLR, macro lens, tripod, for the table top subjects, and for the critter shoot, a ring flash or a flash system with two small flash units on either side of the lens works great.  If you don't have one of these and don't want to buy one, contact us about a very affordable rental options, or Mike Mathews will also have several light diffusers for speed light flashes to loan out.  Constant light sources such as LED lights do not work well for shooting critters. So, please contact us for equipment advise and suggestions. A tripod is not needed for photographing the frogs and reptiles, but will be required for the table top photography.
