Not to be missed! This is a very special workshop for those who would like a practical introduction to macro and close-up photography.

Join Craig Franke and Seng Mah for a morning of learning about macro and close-up photography. This workshop is designed for beginners to macro photography and is the perfect starting point if you're looking to learn how to best use your macro lens or how to take great close up photographs.

You'll learn about the differences between shooting in true macro vs close-up and find out more about the various equipment that macro photographers use. You will also learn the techniques used to shoot macro, from focus to depth of field and lighting to help you take the perfect macro shot!

The session begins with an introduction to macro and close up photography, followed by demonstrations of the key techniques to shoot great macro and close ups. Then, you'll be hands-on shooting with help and guidance from Craig and Seng.

Places in this workshop are limited to 15, so make sure you book in to avoid missing out.
