Macro Photography

Macro photography is an amazing way to see and photograph the world we live in. Unlike most other types of photography, macro photos have a level of detail and closeness to the subject that even the human eye cannot render.

This is class will walk students through the basics of macro photography, lens selection, camera settings, additional lighting and when to use a tripod. Students will then take the knowledge and apply it to several macro setups in the classroom, each showcasing different shooting and lighting techniques.

Advanced subjects like shooting tethered to a computer and images stacking will also be included in class.

Prerequisites: Students should have a basic understanding of how to change camera settings, shutter speed, aperture and ISO on their camera.

Gear Requirements: Camera, lenses, operating manual, and tripod for the photography portion of class.

*Don’t have the right lens? Sigma will have a variety of lenses to loan–don’t let that prevent you from signing up for this class!!
