It’s a whole new world close up…
It is difficult these days to produce a truly unique image. It seems that anything and everything you capture with your camera has already been done a thousand times on photography websites worldwide. Enter the world of Macro Photography. Regardless of where you live there are thousands of amazing AND UNIQUE images to capture within your own home. It’s an entirely new world when you’re up close. Even items that you’ve seen every day of your life become alien to your eyes when you get your camera close enough.
This class will focus on indoors table-top macro photography rather than “in the field” type macro photography. Little (if any) time will be spent on problem solving “in the field” issues. Our time will be focused on technical aspects of shooting macro (example: focus stacking, subject prepping, lighting and working with difficult objects). If you wish to focus on outdoor macro, then I recommend joining the “Wildflower Workshop” where you will learn more “out of doors” macro techniques.
So join me in exploring this lesser known area of photography and you may just find that spending a day in your living room can be more fun than you imagined.
