In life, not everybody has the ability to see the unseen; those things, that when focused on, are stunning. A raindrop on a fresh green leaf, a freshly formed icicle sparkling in the contrasting sun or the colour changes in a perfectly formed flower.

As a photographer, you have a built in foresight that not only allows you to notice these small little wonders, but project them on a larger scale and show off their true beauty to the rest of the unknowing world.

 

By using this technique, a photographer gains the power to open eyes to a whole new world that would otherwise go unnoticed. The best part is, this skill is no longer one that costs a small fortune or is way out of any photographers reach; at our Macro Photography Workshop London, we can teach you to embody all these skills and show your work off to your ever loyal audience.

At our latest session, held on 28th September by experienced tutor Ben Quinton, our students learned a massive plethora of skills, all of which fuse together to create stunning images by very gifted photographers.

Areas covered included:

  • How to handle Macro equipment
  • Camera settings
  • Lenses
  • Finding the best subjects for a Macro photograph
  • Lighting
  • Composition
  • Backgrounds

Below is an absolutely stunning, and very canvas-worthy, photograph that was taken on the day.
