Workshop Description

Learning about photography can be a real challenge. There are so many pieces to the puzzle of photography, some of which use confusing terminology. And while we also offer other wonderful Beginner Photography classes to get you started, nothing is truly the same as hands-on in-the-field! It’s important to fully understand the “why” and “how” of your camera settings.
In this workshop, come learn the basics of macro photography in a hands-on environment! Aperture! Shutter speed! Focus! Exposure! Composition! We will spend our day creating a variety of 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!
After the workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to review their images. We will then reconvene online with an image review where we will discuss many of the factors that we discussed on the walk portion of the workshop. This workshop is an excellent opportunity to hone in on and develop your photography skills.

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!
