Macro & Close-Up Photography Workshop- Hunt’s Photo, Melrose
January 15, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm$99.99
Saturday January 15th, 10am-2pm • Hunt’s Photo, Melrose
Instructor: Emily Hojnowski
Featuring hands-on instruction on everything macro!
Recommended prerequisite: Basic knowledge of your camera
Group Size: Limited to 10 attendees
Too often we feel that our photography comes to a halt during inclement weather. However, there is ample opportunity to make use of our creativity while staying indoors. Many household items– cut flowers, books, antiques, jewelry, and glassware– all make for wonderful subjects while using natural window light. Every table in your house can become a landscape of opportunity with some imagination and creativity.
We will spend our day creating a variety of still life set ups, unique macro scenarios, and learning about the use of light and light modifiers.
In this workshop we will cover exposure, composition, how to use macro lenses and extension tubes, how to set up lighting, how to use light modifiers and more!
We will be bringing lots of props and flowers to photograph for this workshop. However, we find in our macro workshops that our attendees value shooting some things of their own as much if not more than what we bring. So, while we will have props, feel free to bring your own props, trinkets, and other things that may (or may not) be important to you!
Please Note: A Slight Change to COVID-19 Policies on Masks and Social Distancing
Until further notice, we will be requiring masks for our indoor classes. We also ask that you socially distance whenever possible.
As always, if you are sick or feeling unwell, STAY HOME! We will gladly give you a credit towards a future class.

•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 personal items that are special to you. Props, trinkets, jewelry, flowers, or even small toys are welcome. 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 anything giant 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!
