Learn everything you ever wanted to know about macro photography!

Macro photography makes for a therapeutic personal shooting project or a wonderful way to capture details for newborn and wedding clients. Learn how to slow down and take gorgeous macro photographs in this 4 week workshop.

Students will learn how to develop their own vision for macro photography, and how to incorporate different types of light and composition into their macro work. We will cover the technical details and basics of creating stunning macro photographs before moving into more advanced and creative applications. We will explore how to complete our vision with post-processing. This workshop will leave you feeling inspired by all the beauty you find in the details.

PREREQUISITES

Students should be comfortable shooting in manual mode. Students should have gear that allows them to shoot macro photography (a macro lens, Lensbaby with macro capability, filters, or extension tubes). Tiffany is happy to make a recommendation based on your budget.

Tiffany Kelly is a portrait and fine art macro photographer who lives near Atlanta GA with her amazing husband, two adorable daughters, and one loyal rescue mutt.

She can often be found with a Starbucks latte in hand or having a dance party with her little ones.
