Photograph an unseen world
Unlock a new way of seeing
Photography is often used to capture the world around us, in a way our eyes see it. However, when we want to dive a little deeper, macro photography shows us the unseen world we almost never notice—the hidden world of small.
Macro photography, simply put, is process of creating extreme close-up photographs; capturing small items in larger-than-life detail. Imagine dewdrops on a rose petal, the microscopic hairs on a bumblebee’s legs, or the individual barbs of a bird’s feathers.
Simple as this may sound, you need the right tools and techniques to achieve these incredible results. By using special equipment that we will provide to students, you can create images that enlarge the smallest items and make unbelievable photos of everyday objects. In this three-hour workshop, you will learn how to master these tools, practice photographing objects provided by our studio, and be given step-by-step guidance on how to create your own macro images. Perfect for all skill levels!
