Macro & Tabletop Photography Workshop- Holiday Edition
Too often we feel that our photography comes to a halt during inclement weather. However, there is ample opportunity to make use of our creativity while staying indoors. Many household items, cut flowers, books, antiques, jewelry, and glassware all make for wonderful subjects while using natural window light. Every table in your house can become a landscape of opportunity with some imagination and creativity. In our November Macro & Tabletop workshop, we will specialize in creating holiday-themed macro images. Who doesn’t want to spruce up their holiday cards with a beautifully exposed and composed holiday-themed macro photograph?? At the end of the workshop, our goal is to have each photographer leave with a beautiful print. We will spend our day creating a variety of still life set ups, unique macro scenarios, and learning about the use of light and light modifiers, all with a holiday spin! In this workshop we will cover: Exposure Composition Metering Use of Lenses Use of Light Modifiers Subject Development Creative Thinking Shooting in Low Light Image Discussion
