Do you want to learn how to capture the magical world of macro in stunning detail? Paul David Smith is a professional photographer who will teach you how to capture insects, animals, flowers and other tiny objects in this half day 1-2-1 course.
We’ll get ourselves out and about and explore a world not often seen with the naked eye. On this course, we will cover achieving the perfect exposure with both natural light and fill-flash whilst ensuring the subject is isolated from the background and tack-sharp. We’ll cover the best camera modes and settings for macro photography and look at when to use a tripod or monopod to stabilise your camera allowing you to capture the best possible images.
