Houston Center for Photography

Session 1) Close Up: Macro Photography

Wednesday, Apr. 20, 2016 – Wednesday, Apr. 27, 2016

06:00 PM – 09:00 PM

Get ready to get up-close and personal. This course will introduce you to techniques, tools, and lenses used for extreme close-up photography.

The first part of the class is a presentation about lenses for close up and macro, background info, and explanation of getting closer by using lenses. Learn to determine magnification and working distances the simple way instead of professional lenses. The second part allows students to handle set-ups and/or try out in combination with their own equipment. By day 2, get ready to go on location—to Edith L Moore Nature Sanctuary, to get really hands on instruction.
