There’s an old saying in photography that if your pictures aren’t good enough you aren’t close enough. That is why I love macro photography!
I’ll start off showing you examples and talk about the tricks and methods I use to really get great close-up photos. We’ll talk about lighting, lenses and shooting angles. I’ll give you some things to try and warnings of what hasn’t worked for me. We’ll talk about equipment like the difference between 50mm, 100mm and 200mm macro lenses, extension tubes and how they work, macro focus rails and focus stacking.
Then I’ll have five macro studios set up in my office, complete with lighting and fun things to shoot, to give you an opportunity to shoot your own photos from many different perspectives. You’ll shoot cool oil in water photos, bubbling fruit, weird refractions, and I’ll show you how to properly mist a flower to give it added pop. You’ll come away with many ideas to try on your own!
Bring your camera, a macro lens or close focus filters and a tripod. If you don’t have a macro lens, I’ll have a Nikon and Canon macro lens you can use. I also highly recommend using a wired shutter release.
Location: The workshop will be at Loren’s office in downtown Somerville, NJ, just two blocks from the NJ Transit train station. My office is on the third floor and unfortunately there is no elevator. You’ll get full directions once you register.
