Discover the world of Macro Photography.
Join JPI for a macro photo walk to Palma Sola Botanical Park. You'll wander through the 10 acre lush tranquil gardens around the three lakes. Armed with a macro lens, a tripod and a water bottle, you'll explore the ability to make photographs of small items larger than life size.
This is for all levels of photographers on practical macro tips on equipment, composition and depth-of-field.
Equipment - You'll need an interchangeable lens camera (ILC), a tripod and a macro lens. Optional macro accessories: macro filters, reversing rings or a lenses with macro like capabilities. Optional tripod accessories for use in macro photography: a focusing rail, an "L" bracket and a bean bag. Bring a bottle of water and a decent pair of walking shoes. Also, some set-ups maybe easier with a portable stool to sit on.
