MACRO & CLOSE-UP PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP (SCH107)
HIGHLIGHTS
We will show you how to capture the secrets of the tiny world all around us from bugs and critters to abstract and material things. Macro and Close-up is about detail and creating images showing texture, pattern and colour of the smallest things not normally viewed by the human eye.  This is an exciting and challenging form of photography, but is accessible with even basic camera equipment.
  • You'll have lots of hands-on photography throughout the day to perfect your skills.
  • This workshop will demonstrate the techniques and equipment required to produce high-quality macro and close up images.
  • Classes are small, minimum 4 and maximum 8 people so everyone gets attention.
  • It does not matter what brand of camera you have because the fundamentals of photography are the same so you will be quite at home
WHAT OTHERS SAID
"I really enjoyed the time I spent with Rory, learning how to take macro photographs.  The lessons were well structured and informative. Rory is very knowledgeable and he has a  hands-on approach during lessons. He taught me, amongst other things, how to do image stacking, which for me, was a first.  I loved the resulting photos. 
 
For those who cannot afford all the gadgets straight off, he gives lots of tips of how to get the results without spending the huge bucks.  I would recommend this macro course to anyone wanting to learn how to take a good macro photograph." ....Bron


“Rory finds a good balance between theory and practical application thus making the workshop a great learning experience as well as a lot of fun.” ....Geoff
