Workshop Description
Hunt’s Photo Education is proud to present our annual Holiday Macro & Tabletop Workshops. These workshops are designed to help you create, compose, and photograph stellar mini-holiday masterpieces. Photographers that participate in these workshops will also have one of their holiday photographs printed 13×19″ and hung in the Hunt’s Photo Gallery in Melrose for the month of December. (More details below.)
We will begin each workshop with a demo that will discuss camera settings, lighting, composition, subject placement, and more. You will then create and photograph your compositions for the remainder of the time during the workshop, with instructor assistance available. Our ultimate goal in this workshop is at least one “final piece” that can be printed on a large scale.
After the workshop, attendees will edit and process their images on their own and upload 1-2 images to the instructors for review. We will review those images, individually discuss your processing choices and make suggestions for additional edits, then print the images as 13×19″. These photographs will be hung in our Hunt’s Photo Gallery in Melrose for the month of December, after which you will be given the print. We will conclude these workshops on Tuesday November 30th with a printed image review.
But wait… There’s more! In addition to all of this, we will also create a holiday card for you on a Moab Entrada Folding Card. While this may seem like a very small item, these cards are stunning– as much in importance as the large scale print!
This will be a fun and challenging workshop that will walk you through the full process of creating stellar holiday macro imagery. We will stay with you during the editing process, and even guide you in understanding the best processing for a final print. Join us for one of our favorite workshops of the year!

•A Macro lens will be your best lens of choice for this workshop. Remember, we have a rental department at rentals.huntsphoto.com
•Alternatively, you could consider a prime lens (ex 50mm) or a long telephoto zoom lens, but macro is still best
•Macro filters or extension tubes could also work
•For this workshop, we always recommend bringing holiday items that are special to you. Trinkets, ornaments, toys, or anything holiday-related is recommended. We will also have a large collection of items, but if you have something of your own, consider bringing it. Just remember- it should be small, so don’t bring a 2-foot teddy bear unless you want to photograph it very close-up.
•Make sure to bring your tripod with a quick release plate and a shutter release, if you have one.
•Feel free to bring snacks and water
•Bring an extra camera battery and memory cards.
•As always, bring your enthusiasm and creative thoughts!
