Join Hunt’s Photo Education for our Macro & Tabletop Workshop, Capture & Edit Edition! In this workshop, we will combine the fun of photographing macro and tabletop setups with editing and processing of images.
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 begin with a short presentation on macro photography, how to use specific gear, how to light, and how to compose macro photographs. We will then spend the next portion of our day creating a variety of still life set ups and unique macro scenarios using a variety of lights and light modifiers. We will then transition to the processing of images, working individually on your own personal laptops. We will finish with a brief critique of images.
We recommend bringing a laptop with Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Photoshop installed for editing.
This workshop is recommended for anyone who wants to get more creative with their photography, both in camera and in post-production!
Approximate schedule for the day:
10am- Introductions, presentation on macro, gear, lighting, settings, etc
11am- Photographing of macro setups
2pm- Short lunch break; quick cleanup of macro setups (Attendees are encouraged to bring a bagged lunch and take a short break during this time) After lunch, we will work on post-processing of images.
4pm- Review & critique
5pm- End of day
Please note: Depending on how many attendees we receive, we may hold this workshop at a different nearby location with more space, rather than in the store. We will detail this in our reminder email a few days prior to the event and will not be far from our Holyoke store.
