Join us for the intermediate level of our macro photography 1-day workshops. We will delve into the technical aspects of true macro photography. This workshop is perfect for students that have dabbled in close-up and macro photography and want to expand their knowledge and confidence with the subject. This workshop also includes one hour of online one-on-one post-processing instruction via Skype.

(Note: Due to time constraints we will not be covering off camera lighting or focus stacking. For those, consider taking one of our multi-day workshops, a custom workshop, or booking us for a One-on-one Post-Processing Lesson.)

Other items to bring:

  • Water/Water Bottle

  • Sunscreen

  • Rain Coat and Rain Pants

  • Light and Mid-Weight Layers. Layering is a great way to stay warm or cool off depending on conditions.

  • Bug Spray (Maines state bird is the mosquito, just saying)

  • Extra snacks (We will have some, but it never hurts to have more.)

  • Extra Socks and closed toe shoes. (As happens often when shooting around water, your feet will likely get wet feet and nobody likes spending days in wet shoes and socks. If you have hip waiters, these can help in some scenarios. Also, while sandals and flats can be comfortable, they are horrible for getting around on slippery rocks, so we highly recommend waterproof closed-toe shoes or boots.)

Activity Level

While most of the locations are readily accessible from parking lots, there will be some moving on uneven surfaces to get to the best angles as well as short hikes that require some moderate physical ability to access.

Rain Date

There will be no rain date for his workshop. Many of the locations that we will be shooting can look great on a rainy day and part of our teaching will emphasize how to make the best of the conditions at any given locations.
