Macro Photography Course

Macro Photography Course on Sunday 17th May 2020 - £135-FULL

This Macro Photography course is limited to six students and it will show you how to shoot sharp, well focused close-ups of insects, flowers and small objects, such as coins and jewellery. We will also show you how to light objects like fossils correctly to bring out their detail. A multitude of subjects will be provided but if you have something special you like to photograph then bring that along too.

This 1 Day Macro Photography Course is suitable for the experienced novice or intermediate photographer. Ideally you will have attended one of our Beginners Photography Courses before taking this course as a good understanding of the menus and various camera settings will be required so you can concentrate on the subject at hand rather than the technicalities of setting your camera. You will require some specialist kit for this course so please see below for details and sample prices in the right hand column.

Another fabulous course delivered in an easy to understand  manner while being given the opportunity to ask questions. Glen makes sure that everything is understood before moving on. The theory in the morning helps the practical in the afternoon even more enjoyable. Brilliant. Jane Allwright.

I learnt so much on this course. I loved the focus stacking and also photographs through raindrop. I will be trying all the techniques when I get home. Tara Lydon.

Excellent course yet again! Great tuition, both theory and practical and good fun too. Jane Coles

Most courses done and I’ve learnt something new every one of them. I may be skint but it’s been worth every penny. Dave Allen.

I came expecting a high standard of instruction and I was not disappointed. Excellent value for money and I would recommend this course to everyone. Lee Marshall
