Macro Photography

Macro Photography

Presented by The Umbrella Arts Center at The Umbrella Arts Center

In this class, we will focus on macro photography of insects, plants, and other natural elements using primarily natural light. Macro photography is a gateway into another world. Macro photographs can be either hyper-realistic or completely abstract based on the photographer.

Requirements: Students must provide their own camera and a macro lens or macro adapter tubes for their camera. A tripod is highly recommended.

Additional Class Add-ons:
30-minute pre-class camera basics add-on:
Need some extra guidance on your particular camera and all of its features BEFORE you get to class? The instructor, Brent Mills, is offering a private zoom-based one-on-one add-on to this workshop to review of your camera’s basic features and most useful tools. Get the most of your workshop experience by adding this special additional offering. Once register, zoom meetings are scheduled privately for weekday evenings prior to the scheduled workshop date, dependent upon other bookings.

60-minute post class, photo editing add-on:
Looking to learn some tricks on how to get the most from your digital photography? Offered by instructor Brent Mills as a post-workshop add-on, this zoom-based, 1 hour, group class on photo editing is meant to show students simple retouching of a photo in Lightroom and Photoshop. Using one of the photos from the previous class, Brent will send out the image in advance and walk students through each touch up step by step. This workshop add on will be scheduled with enough enrollment on the evening of the next day after the last in-person session. So if the class is a Saturday only, then editing is on Sunday evening. If it’s a Saturday and Sunday workshop, then it’s on a Monday evening.
