What you will learn:
This relaxed course will take you on a 6-hour tour through all the creative and technical aspects you need to take fabulous macro photos.
We will walk in the woods and stop to discus the points below and practice the different techniques. stopping for a picnic lunch.
You will learn simple and inexpensive tricks to make the most out of any camera you own, including your phone!
The skills here will be transferable across a wide range of gear, we will not be able to teach you about your particular camera’s settings.
You will take away a camera card full of images from your day and we will provide a crib-sheet to help you practice on your own.
Later, more advanced courses will go into more technical detail and deal with processing and printing.
