Introduction to Macro Photography with Wild Arena
Sat 29 April 2017, 14:00 – 16:30 BST
Join Park Cameras and Nature Imaging Experts Wild Arena for this 2 ½ hour introduction to Macro Photography.
This session is a great way of getting started with this fascinating area of photography. The session will include an introductory presentation that aims to cover the basic questions and difficulties surrounding macro photography. From there a variety of topics will be covered including, the choice & use of macro lenses, keeping things in focus & the creative use of depth-of-field, managing movement in the images with shutter speeds and the correct use of other related accessories.
Within this session there will be a ‘hands-on’ practical demonstration of techniques where attendees will have the chance to try and capture their own images of some great close-up subjects brought along especially for the day. Subjects will include flowers and plants but also some fascinating smaller creatures like Stick Insects, Praying Mantis, Rainbow Beetle, Painted Grass Hoppers, Geckos and Tree Frogs*. These subjects will be available to photograph with a choice of either continuous light or flash light, which Wild Arena will bring along and demonstrate.
This session is ideally suited to customers using DSLR cameras and there will be a range of Canon fit macro lenses to try out on the day if you do not already own one. Please ensure you bring a memory card with you so that all the images you shoot can be taken away for you to keep!
With small group sizes of a maximum of 8 delegates this is great value for those photographers wishing to develop their skills in macro and close-up.
