A macro photography workshop with Andrew Goodall, held in Montville at the Russell Family Park…known to many of Andrew’s friends as Frog City. It’s a perfect location for hunting dwarf tree frogs, and other great subjects can be found here as well.
This is a three-hour workshop for small groups (six people only). It is perfect for the warmer months when the days are long and the light is good into the late afternoon.
Andrew has spent many hours photographing at Frog City, and will help you find your subjects. The more you look the more you see. Then you can go to work with your macro lens while Andrew offers tips and techniques to suit each situation. Some shots will be hand-held, others may require a tripod. See how to deal with the shallow depth of field and find ways to increase the DOF if you need to. Learn to get sharp photos using autofocus and manual focus, and control your settings for well-exposed macro images.
What to bring: Your camera (DSLR or Mirrorless) with a macro lens. A tripod (if you don’t have one you can borrow one of Andrew’s spares). A remote release if you have one but not essential. Make sure your battery is fully charged and you have plenty of space on your memory card. Check the weather forecast and dress accordingly. A hat, comfortable shoes, sunscreen are advised.
