The Beautiful World of Close-Up Photography . . .
Photographing flowers close-up can be quite the challenge if not a mystery to some photographers. I will attempt to help de-mystify macro photography by covering proper equipment, exposure, depth-of-field, camera angles and backgrounds. You will be able to experiment with several different lighting set-ups including natural window light, studio flash and more.
A brief overview and demonstration of macro and close-up photography
In the morning session I will have several lighting set-ups for you to photograph at. I'll have different backgrounds for your pleasure as well. Macro photography can be quite rewarding once you get past the technical challenges and can just be in the creative state.
Lunch on your own (we usually go to the same place and chat during lunch!) or if you prefer, pack a lunch.
The afternoon session you will work on your images with your computers with the tips and techniques that I use to create my style of fine art imagery. Some of the topics and techniques I plan to cover include:
Adjustment layering and masking in Photoshop CS6
Texture overlays & Graphique Authority templates
Lots more as time permits
This workshop is limited to 20 attendees and is ONLY $99 for ALL day! You will also receive a certificate for a FREE 16x20 print from Nichols Photo Lab in Salt Lake City, UT. Nichols is one of my generous sponsors. I will also have plenty of Graphic Authority products on hand for sale. Another of my sponsors, Dury’s Photographic Supply will have some specials for us as well.
About Jeff Johnson
Fine Art photography has been the very passion of my life. I’ve been fortunate to make a living doing what I genuinely love. From creating timeless portraits of children & families, to capturing the spirit & emotion of a wedding, this has truly been a rewarding
career. I couldn't imagine doing anything else.??? Spending time in the “creative process” of capturing a fine art image, whether it is with Mother Nature or Mankind can be a very spiritual experience. I’ve realized that my deepest desire is in the challenge of creating a
visual impression of a mere moment in time. More than just an image of pleasing composition, but one that inspires, one that will spark an emotion and stimulate the viewer’s senses.
Each of my images has it's own story infused with my emotions and memories. Yet my hope is that each image will evoke an emotion, trigger a memory or inspire you in some way that creates or defines your own stories of my imagery. I trust that as you enjoy each
image they become a part of your soul as they have mine.??????
“Images From The Soul” is more than a conceptual description of my fine art photographic collections. Each image is an expression of what I was feeling or experiencing at that moment, deep within my soul. Please enjoy my imagery at Soul Images Gallery and JJ Portrait Art.
