Macro Magnificence – Photography Workshop
Learn what macro photography is, methods and trade-offs, equipment and techniques
You’ll learn what macro photography is, what different magnification methods there are, and the trade-offs of one approach over the others.
We’ll also discuss equipment choices and shooting techniques, including lighting and exposure, depth of field, and focusing.
Finally, we’ll address challenges that shooting macro photography presents and how software can overcome some of the inherent limitations of cameras and lenses.
Students will receive group and individual support with time divided between learning the tools and techniques of macro photography and shooting in the field.
Please bring an adjustable camera that can focus to within a few inches of the lens (DSLRs and mirrorless cameras with a macro lens, extension tube, or other close up lenses are ideal), a tripod, and patience to explore, practice, and play. If available, bring a laptop with your favorite image editing program installed.
This class is intended for those with digital camera experience.
