What to Bring:
  • Bring your camera with memory cards and an extra battery, as we?ll be doing a lot of shooting.
  • A macro lens is essential for this workshop. (If you are looking for a lens to rent, you can rent it from us at rentals.huntsphoto.com!)
  • If you don’t have a macro lens, the next best lens would be a longer telephoto, 70-100mm.
  • Macro filters or extension tubes can also be used
  • 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!

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!
We will also have a follow-up online image review to help understand your images better!
