Artful Macro Photography


  • June 3, 2017
    8:30am - 11:30am


Try a variety of ways to create close-up images of spring flowers, plant shoots and bonsai trees from our collection.  Learn focus stacking — a technique that combines multiple images taken at different focus distances, increasing the resulting image’s depth-of-field.  Several natural and easy-to-transport backgrounds will be provided.  Bring your DSLR camera, close-up lens and tripod.  This program will take place outdoors, weather permitting.  In the event of rain, camera raincoats and tripod umbrellas will be available, as well as opportunities to photograph indoors.
