This 4 hour course covers the basics of Macro photography using SLR cameras.
Macro photography offers the opportunity to view nature and objects much closer and in more detail than usual. Everyday objects can take on a totally new perspective.
Theory and practical sessions, with refreshments provided.
Topics covered include:
• Introduction to Macro Photography.
• Lenses, flash and accessories.
• Lighting - problems and solutions.
• Photographing a selection of flowers, plants and insects.
Tripod highly recommended and a lens with a ‘macro’ setting. A 1:1 macro lens desirable.
The theory and practical sessions are combined to enable photos to be taken as early as possible, in an effort to minimise the effects of wind/movement on your subjects.
