January 31  Shiv Verma – Macro/Close-up and Image Stacking Photography
Macro photography lets you explore and create exciting photographs of a whole new and intimate world. Zeroing-in to create an interesting abstract or just filling the frame with a tiny flower, insect or a jewel. This program will address the challenges you’ll face with Macro Photography and the methods and tools used to overcome those challenges. We will deal with the lighting and equipment, as well as several techniques to get better images. This includes select-ing the appropriate equipment; lighting and stacking. You will understand the importance of Depth-of-Field as it affects Macro Photos. You will learn how to create high magnification images using macro lenses, tubes, and diop-ters. In addition, you will learn how to create one completely focused image from sever-al partially focused images. This focus stacking technique is Ideal for macro-photography when the sharpness of the entire subject is critical.
