Let's meet for coffee, etcetera, and talk about photography. This month's topic will be Macro and Close-Up.
It's a small world, and capturing it with a photograph can be challenging. Let's explore the special challenges of macro photography: dealing with moving subjects, working with extremely shallow depth of field, focusing, lighting, and more. Some of the topics we can explore as a group are:
What is a macro photograph? What is a macro lens? Finding good subject matter Evaluating macro gear like extension tubes and tilt-shift lenses Composing and framing shots Exploring depth of field Lighting macro shots Working with light tables Editing macro shots I'll bring printed copies of the listed topics. We can choose which ones to discuss as a group.
Hope you to see there!
