Lansing Photo Meetup

MACRO! Let's get close... REALLY close....

So what do we do on a cold Winter night? Get up close to stuff of course. Let's learn more about MACRO shots. Filters, extensions, lenses, lighting and of course a good spicing of tech talk. 

Macro photography, when you get up really close to stuff, is a lot of fun to do. You get to notice small details, textures, patterns and colors that you wouldn't normally be able to appreciate. 

The famous shots are bugs and of course flowers. Both of course are a little hard to find in this weather so we will have to rely on things like "silk" flowers. Better yet, it's a lot of fun to get close to things like jewelry. figurines, even a cool rock. It's fun to use your imagination. 

So bring whatever hardware you might have including a tripod if you have one. And bring along something that might be fun to get a macro of, and let's get up close and personal with some stuff!
