📷Moody Gardens Birds Up Close – Photography!

April 20 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am
  • This event has passed.

The 10-story glass Rainforest Pyramid at Moody Gardens enables you to see the rainforests of the World in a whole new way offering ample opportunities for interesting photographs. A walkway will lead you through the canopy level where you can explore the exhibit from a new vantage point, seeing the monkeys, sloths and the other free-roaming tree-dwellers closer than ever before. Kathy will discuss and demonstrate techniques to observe and capture images of these rainforest inhabitants. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to explore this excellent rainforest habitat before opening hours. You will be able to capture images without the trip to the Amazon Rainforest!  Within the rainforest, there is also an area to photograph tropical frogs.

Suggested Equipment: Digital SLR, mirrorless, or camera with adjustable shutter speeds and f/stops. Medium telephoto in the 70-300mm, 70-200mm, 100-400mm, or 80-400mm range. Tripods can be useful since the light can be low. No need to bring all of your equipment so travel light!

Drive your own car to this event. Please allow 25 minutes to travel from the East End of the Island to Moody Gardens, 1 Hope Blvd, park your car, unload equipment and walk to the entrance of the Visitor’s Center where the Rainforest is located. Your trip liaison will meet you there and you will go in as a group. Driving directions to Moody Gardens will be emailed to you prior to the festival. Admission to the Rainforest is included in the trip price. Click here to download a map of Moody Gardens.
