Course description

Macro or close-up photography has become increasingly popular in digital photography due to the ability to create extraordinary images from ordinary objects.  However, it is fraught with common issues and problems such as depth of field, or indeed getting close to insect species for example.

On this workshop, we cover the overall technique of macro or close-up photography, from basics, through stalking live insects, depth of field, metering, and on to more advanced techniques such as setting up a daylight studio to mirror lock-up.

It is an excellent follow-on to any of the Beginner’s workshops as it teaches the whole workflow or is equally suitable to more advanced photographers.

These workshops are a mixture of classroom theory and field work on the stunning Knepp Wildlands.
