Instructor: Emily Hojnowski & Ron Phillips
Featuring hands-on instruction on everything macro…with a spring twist!
Recommended prerequisite: Basic knowledge of your camera
Group Size: Limited to 12 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.
In this special edition of our Macro workshop, we will be working specifically with spring-oriented items, lighting that reflects the mood of spring, and developing ideas that all build to the central idea of “Spring”, which will only be 6 days away! We will spend our day creating a variety of macro/close-up set ups using numerous items, including cut-flowers, 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 have found at 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!
If you do not have a macro lens, never fear! Our rental department (rentals.huntsphoto.com) has macro lenses available to rent for the day. PRO TIP: Rent it on Saturday, and for the same price, you can keep the lens to use until Monday for the same price!
