About The Event

Macro photography isn't easy, and it gets even trickier when you add wildlife into the equation! With such a wealth of insects and flowers here on the organic farm it's the perfect place to learn!

We'll take you through the key skills, practise them in a controlled environment then take a trip out on to the farm to put these skills into use. Because of the time of year the course runs we can expect a massive diversity of flowers, beetles, spiders, butterflies and other wonderful British creatures.

A lens with macro functionality is required for this course. Dedicated macro lenses or telephoto lenses with a macro capability are suitable - if you are at all unsure please get in touch.

The structure of the day is outlined below;

  • Exposure Refresh
  • Macro skills and techniques; Depth of field, capturing sharp images, lighting and backgrounds
