Product Description

Date & Time:

This six hour class runs on Saturday, April 29th from 10:30am-4:30pm. There will be a 45 minute break for lunch. Please note: lunch will NOT be provided, so you can either bring your lunch and eat in the classroom and ask questions of Reid the instructor, or take the time to get out of the classroom.

Class Details:

Come celebrate the natural world and learn to photograph close up where a flower becomes a world of its own.  You'll learn the different methods of shooting macro photography, the costs, the trade offs one method offers over the others, as well as ways to address other challenges that shooting macro photography presents.

Students will receive group and individual support with time split between learning the tools and techniques of macro photography and shooting in the field (the area/streets around Looking Glass Photo).

Please bring a camera that can focus to within a few inches of the lens (DSLRs are great with a macro lens, extension tube, or other close up lenses; most point and shoot cameras have a built-in macro function; even a smartphone is suitable to shoot macro!), a tripod, preferably one that can be extended to lay close to the ground, and patience to explore, practice, and play.  If available, bring a laptop with your favorite image editing program. 

Here’s what you’ll explore in this immersive class/workshop:

  • What is Macro
  • Important elements of a Macro photography
  • Magnification approaches and equipment
  • Various Macro techniques
  • Manual focus
  • Lighting
  • Depth of field
  • Exposure
