Event description
Macro photography is the art of taking extreme close-ups and creating an image that is larger than the subject itself.

About this event

In this studio based workshop with Angela Robertson-Buchanan, you will learn to take stunning portraits of an array of insects and reptiles using daylight and continuous studio lighting.

Using your macro lenses, you will enter a fascinating world of detail. Revealing features of creatures, you have never seen!

You will also learn about habitats and behaviours of your subject as well as techniques that transpire into the wild.

Always aiming to leave the smallest possible human footprint and being respectful to all creatures great and small, you will be shown “old-fashioned shooting techniques” and props to create the shot in-camera rather than relying on post production.

Subjects:

  • Spiders
  • Various lizards
  • Stick insects
  • Frogs
  • Scorpion

Please note subjects may change due circumstances beyond our control.

Skill Level: Beginner to intermediate

What to Bring:
