What to Bring:
  • A Macro lens will be your best lens of choice for this workshop. Remember, we have a rental department at rentals.huntsphoto.com

  • Macro filters or extension tubes could also work
  • We will be bringing lots of toys and other props 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 those toys and props, feel free to bring your own!
  • 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.

Come see your photography through the eyes of a kid and transform your toys into life size photos!
In this dual macro/still life class, we’ll spend our day creating a variety of still life set ups, unique macro scenarios, different lighting techniques, compositions, and how to tell a story when working with toys. 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!
