Macro Photography Class at Jungle Island
This workshop shows you how to master the amazing world of Macro photography, by allowing you to take a closer look and discover the details and never-ending curiosities of nature with Jungle Island as your back drop. Photographer and college professor Rick McCawley will teach you about magnification ranges, as well as various optical and mechanical methods for getting close to your subject.
Issues of critical focus and depth-of-field, techniques for camera support and vibration control as well as lighting will be explained.
In the second part of this workshop you will have the opportunity to practice on still-life, flowers and insects in the most perfect surroundings in the heart of Jungle Island. Students will work on a series of their own choice based on what they have learned during the workshop.
Finally you will come back to the workshop to share, review and critique everyone’s images. This workshop will leave you confident of your new skills and ready for the next workshop.
