Macro and Close Up Photography Workshop - 15th January 2011

There are few places available on my Macro and Close-Up Photography for Beginners workshop this Saturday, 15th January 2011 at Park Cameras in Burgess Hill, West Sussex, England.

Strawberries - even what appear to be mundane everyday objects can make stunning macro images - especially when printed BIG and displayed on a wall

This is an indoor/studio based workshop which is totally practical and led by the requirements of the participants and is a great opportunity to explore the world that is sometimes invisible to the unaided human eye. Macro photography techniques allow you photograph subjects at life size (also expressed as 100% or 1:1) or bigger on your camera sensor.

So if you were lucky enough to be treated to a shiny new macro lens or ring flash for Christmas, or just want to learn how to create some amazing close-up images book your place here. You will need to bring along you DSLR camera, a tripod, macro lens or prime lens and extension tubes to get the best from this workshop. If you have a Speedlite(s), hot shoe flash or even a ring flash, even better.

The teeth of a rip saw, here reproduced approximately life-size. Printed to 20" x 16" or bigger this image looks amazing!

During the workshop I'll be covering how to focussing, depth-of-field, avoiding camera shake to get sharp images and a wide variety of lighting techniques including daylight, flash and continuous LED lights.

If you live outside of the area and need to travel the day before, there is now a Premier Inn within a short walk from the Park Cameras showroom and training centre, both are located within easy reach of the M23 and M25 between Brighton on the south coast and Gatwick Airport. Both the Premier Inn and Park Cameras have plenty of free parking. Burgess Hill is also served by a regular train service from London, Brighton and Gatwick Airport.
