with Rob Sheppard
Mar 17-19, 2017: 9:30am – 5:30pm
Have you ever thought about doing macro and close-up photography but aren’t doing it? Maybe because you thought you had to have or use a macro lens. This is your chance to release yourself from those limitations and discover fun and effective approaches to close-up work. Rob Sheppard is known for his unique macro and close-up work that goes beyond the macro lens. You don’t have to have or even think you have to have a macro lens in order to have great fun expanding your photo possibilities through close-up and macro photography. While there are some key aspects of this type of work that will be appropriate for everyone, such as focus, sharpness, exposure, composition, and simply getting effective close and macro shots, the class will also adapt to the needs of the students. See more of Rob’s work in his book, Macro Photography: From Snapshot to Great Shot.
