In this class we will explore special techniques for creating artistic, up-close images with your digital SLR camera and macro lens, point and shoot with macro function, or smartphone in a casual virtual environment. Among the subjects we will discuss in this class are various equipment options, the proper conditions for photographing indoors and outdoors, lighting, backgrounds, choosing the best subject, depth of field, and other helpful tips for using a macro lens. The class consists of a lecture and time to discuss each students’ work and answer questions.

Assignments/exercises will be suggested for the second class.  On Day 2 we will review the highlights from Day 1 and look at photos taken by the participants since the previous class.
