Close-up and Macro Photography Presentation

Please join the Color Camera Club of Westchester for a great program of photography by noted lecturer and photographer  Lester Lefkowitz

There’s an entire universe of beauty, fascination and intrigue on a scale not readily captured in conventional photography.  This presentation will show you the basics of how to get close, and closer, to the wonderful details and never ending curiosities of both natural and man-made objects

Lester will cover the concepts of magnification ranges, various optical and mechanical methods for getting close (diopter lenses, extension tubes, macro lenses), issues of critical focus and depth-of-field, techniques for camera support and vibration control, and lighting.  You’ll see a demonstration of focus stacking to achieve “infinite” depth-of-field. Aesthetics are just as important; he’ll touch on composition, background, appropriate light, image balance and subject selection.


Lester Lefkowitz has been a photographer since before he was born.  His work has appeared in National Geographic, The New York Times, Time Magazine, and hundreds of other U.S. and international publications.  Lester has created images for Microsoft, General Electric, IBM, General Motors, Citibank, Johnson & Johnson and many other Fortune500® companies.  He’s photographed in all fifty states, twenty-one countries and Antarctica.  He is also the author of three books on photography, including The Manual of Close-Up Photography.
