About the Event
Macro photography can be so beautiful and quite rewarding. It can also be quite challenging, if not a mystery to many photographers. Knowing what lens to choose, what f-stop to use, what lighting and direction to best enhance the subject and where to focus sometimes is just a best guess. It doesn’t have to be!
Jeff Johnson, M.Photog., will attempt to de-mystify macro photography for you by covering proper equipment, exposure, depth-of-field, camera & lighting angles and backgrounds. There are several possible lighting set-ups including natural window light, studio strobe, soft-box, strip light, umbrella, etc. Backgrounds vary greatly in creating your macro art, as well. Macro photography can be quite rewarding and satisfying once you get past the technical challenges. Learn these simple techniques and allow your creativity to wander.
This full-day hands-on workshop will cover these topics and techniques:
- Image pre-visualization & composition
- Equipment including:o Cameras and lens o Lighting – styles and techniques o Backgrounds & props
- Camera settings including: o F-stopso Shutter speeds o ISO o Auto vs. Manual focus
- Lightroom & Photoshop including o Adjustment layering (Photoshop) o NIK Software o Texture overlays
