Macro Photography

Saturday, June 19 and 26
10 am - 2 pm

Get close to your subjects, see details that you never new existed, and open up whole new avenues of photography with macro lens technology. Macro photography is one of the few forms of photography that shows the world in a way that the human eye cannot see, and creates a whole new field of subjects that a photographer can capture, like plants, bugs, and textures.

This course will teach you the basics of macro photography, equipment required, and techniques to capture the best images possible. The first session of class will walk students through gear, techniques and workflow for best possible results when capturing macro subjects.

The second session of class will be the following week, giving students time to rent or purchase equipment, and will be on location. This will give students time to find and work with their own subjects, and well as have hands on instruction.  

Class Prerequisites: Basic DSLR

Required Gear: Students need to bring their cameras, lenses, charged batteries and manuals to class. A tripod is recommended by not required. A dedicated macro lens, or a lens with macro features is recommend for the second session of class.
