Learn how to create unusual and striking close-up images both in the field and in your own backyard and/or home studio.

Award-winning fine art photographer and workshop leader, Charles Needle, will guide you through all the necessary steps to take your macro photography to the next level. He will cover more advanced topics, such as selective-focus macro, “shooting through” with a telephoto lens, close-up lenses/diopters, wide-angle macro, and macro with specialty lenses, such as Lensbaby Velvet lenses and a Taleidoscope lens.

Charles will also discuss specific methods for shooting water droplets, reflections on iridescent glass, mylar, and abstract close-ups of everyday household objects.

Note: If you’d like to try some of the techniques and tabletop set-ups discussed in this program firsthand, Charles will be offering a session Friday afternoon from 12 to 4 pm in the Campus Center.
