Immerse yourself in the colors, textures, and incredible detail that’s revealed through macro photography.

In this hands-on workshop we’ll be exploring textures, shapes, colors, and magnification as we experiment with a variety of macro techniques. Our emphasis will be on choosing interesting subjects, composing for maximum impact, and using controlled lighting to reveal every intricacy of your subject.

Macro photography is a specialty that’s both immersive and consuming. Time flies by as each refinement pushes you closer and closer to your imagined image. The process of composing and lighting can be consuming as you progress, and then deeply exhilarating as you see the final image emerge. Macro images are always revealing in their detail, and the creative process is deeply satisfying to experience.  We’ll discuss several helpful tools for positioning subjects, employ some readily available backgrounds, and discuss optimal camera and lens settings. All experience levels are welcome, and everyone will have ample time to create several new images. I hope you’ll come magnify the world with us!
