Taking photographs of objects close-up or extremely close-up (macro
photography requires special skills. This class will teach you the difference
between the two and the techniques to photograph objects close-up using your
camera and lens. The instructors will demonstrate and explain how to use
extension tubes with your lens and will discuss how to determine which of
the three kinds of macro lenses is best for you.
Students need to bring an object to use as your subject for the class, your
camera with a fully charged battery, your camera manual, a note pad and a
tripod, if you have one.
