Hello people, today i wanna ask you what is the best setting to use in a butterfly farm where the lack of light is quite huge..what is your opinion, how we can improve the lack of light, what should we use and how to get the best from the settings we use.

Using the flash is not a choice as you are not allowed to use it at (at least where i was).

So hopefully we can have a good solution to get the best results.

Thank you, Daniel

Crank up the ISO and then simply remove the ISO noise in post. Topaz Denoise (external link) is really good at cleaning up a photo while preserving detail. Keep your focal length low as well, so you can shoot at around 1/200 with minimal support. Take a monopod to help steady the camera, but leave the ball head at home. Hold onto the monpod with you thumb extended and rest the lens on it, that way you can quickly re-position the height / angle of the lens without having to adjust the monopod or a ball head.

In post become one with the Universe and the delete key on your keyboard. The critters will move when you least expect it, and no one will respect the fact that you're trying to get some photos...

Is lack of light a problem in many butterfly farms? In London we have a summer one in a greenhouse and the light is really good. Of course it depends on the time of year but you are in London so if you are going to the Natural History museum butterfly farm you should be fine and won't need to worry about the light.
