Ever wonder what makes certain award-winning images so spectacular and crisp? The answer lies in two simple words – “Get closer”. Macro or close-up photography helps you capture nature’s finest creations in all their beauty. In order to capture the finer points of a setting, the correct equipment and skill can take you a long way.
This workshop helps you choose the appropriate lens and trains you in composing tight and eye-catching photographs. It ensures that you see subjects intimately and showcase minute details with amazing results. You will learn techniques of choosing the right lighting and background, of selecting the correct perspective and focusing just right to capture and enhance fine details. Not only does this workshop make you visually aware, it also opens your mind to subjects you would have never even considered before.
Our instructors will introduce you to the work of some of the masters of Macro photography to inspire and stimulate your creative instincts. You will be able to capture the delicate petals of vibrant flowers, wiry frames of insects, falling droplets or even the profound beauty of people’s eyes with precision. By the end of the workshop, the world around you will start yielding the most amazing imagery to shoot. Don’t blame us if your family suddenly finds you obsessed with Macro photography.
