It’s finally here. I have pulled together the first of a full range of macro photography workshops. The survey indicated that learning about macro equipment was most important for the majority of respondents, so it will be the first of the scheduled ‘mini’ macro workshops for March and April.
The 4 hour long macro equipment workshop, called Macro Tools, will cover:
- how to get closer: macro accessories and lenses from budget to lavish
- tools for photography in natural light
- flash and flash accessories
- specialized macro flash
- other accessories and gadgets
- non-partisan purchasing advice
Throughout the session attendees will have the opportunity to handle various equipment set-ups (Canon and Nikon), with the last hour open for general discussion and to practice more handling of specific equipment.
The first Macro Tools Workshops will take place in my home in Edmonton, with a maximum of four spaces per session.
The scheduled days are:
10 March, 2013: 1 to 5 pm
24 March, 2013: 1 to 5 pm
7 April, 2013: 1 to 5 pm *Only one spot left!*
◊ Anyone who is new to photography or digital single lens reflex cameras is invited to take the Introduction to DSLR Photography (9 AM to Noon) prior to the Macro Tools session.
All workshops require a minimum of 2 participants to proceed. First come, first served – please register at the Small-group Workshops page, where you can also find out about future workshops.
