Macro Photography - Bob Brind-Surch
Macro work is a fascinating field of photography which can however seem very baffling and very expensive! My aim in this talk is to try and dispel both of these myths and to show just how easy and fun it can be. As a predominantly wildlife photographer macro quite simply enables me to get ‘up close and personal’ to the natural world. In this talk I explore the options available to the amateur photographer who wishes to experiment with macro as well as share some of my own photos. The examples I use will largely be taken from the natural world but the techniques carry over to any other subject matter. I cover very basic, hybrid camera options but spend most of the time looking at the options available to SLR owners including some of the possibilities brought about by very advanced lenses and specialist software. This is a very practical talk and I demonstrate many of the techniques I describe and bring along a great deal of macro equipment to demonstrate and discuss. Lighting macro shots is always a problem so I spend some time exploring options. I also discuss and demonstrate techniques of particular value to macro photographers such as focus stacking.
Next Workshop -> 30/11/2017
Studio Session 2 - Model Shoot 1 - Alistair Balharrie
This workshop is aimed at people who have never used professional studio lights before, or as a refresher for those who need one. We will be doing various lighting set ups and backgrounds over the two workshops. These workshops will give you the opportunity to experience, albeit for a limited time period, working with a professional model in an actual local studio environment. Please note the higher cost to cover additional expenses. Please note that this could involve Lingerie or Nudity depending on the theme of shoot.
