Event description
Do you want to learn a unique photographic skill that lets you view the world from a new perspective?

About this Event

The art of macro photography lies in using your camera to make what’s tiny in size look larger than life. After this hands-on workshop, you’ll be able to do exactly that.

Our Nikon School Lecturers will teach you how to optimise your camera settings and lens configurations for extreme close-ups, while helping you develop an eye for effective small-scale compositions. You’ll also start considering the emotion and warmth of your macro shot.

Our aim is that through this specialist workshop, you’ll walk away having honed specific technical and creative photographic skills.

Skill Level: Entry level to Intermediate

Topics Covered

  • Aperture and shutter priorities to achieve the right exposure – learn what the best options are in different situations to achieve different results
  • Composition – learn about using space and contrast to optimise options.
  • Working with available light – learn how to use angles to maximise your options and work without the use of a tripod.
  • Warmth and emotion in your images – using colour and texture.
  • Telling a story – what are you trying to share with others?

What to bring

  • A DSLR or Mirrorless camera
  • Fully charged camera battery
  • Your camera’s Instruction Manual
  • Memory card (s)
