2018 Photography Workshop – Look Closely

Sunday 27 May

Purple fungi

Discover tools to see nature up close to tell your story.

Macro photography is about concentrating on small details. You, the photographer, control subject selection, isolation, lighting, perspective and camera controls to create a spectacular visual narrative.

We will start by running through some camera basics (controls, modes, settings) before exploring how to use camera settings to isolate close-up subjects and get the most from lighting and angles.

Then we put it into practice exploring Mt Gravatt Conservation Reserve to find your story to share with the group.
