Getting Started in Macro Photography


Open up a whole new world to your photography with this workshop that gives you an insight into shooting the world of small things. "Intro to Macro Photography" is a practical introduction to understanding how to best use your macro lens to nail those stunning macro shots you've seen before!

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.
