Why You Will Love This Course: Macro photography is one of the most popular forms of photography, and with good reason! With endless opportunities, enter the world of extreme detail with this 4-hour session sharing tips and tricks to achieve better macro photographs. For macro photography, either DSLRs or mirrorless cameras would work great, there are some technical hurdles that you must cross, a sharp image of a tiny object requires the lens to be positioned much closer than for normal photography.
This is a hands-on session addressing both theory and practice. The course will begin in the training suite, allowing us to discuss the technical and artistic aspects of great macro photography before heading out and putting the theory into practice in the stunning Adelaide Botanic Gardens.
Reach your full potential and master the following techniques:
Selecting the correct lens
How extension tubes work
Controlling your aperture
Focusing options, focus stacking
Light control, managing natural light, flash and modifiers, using LEDs
Duration: 4 Hours
