Workshop: Macro Photography

August 27, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Bartram’s Garden
5400 Lindbergh Blvd.
Philadelphia, 19143 United States

$40

***UPDATE: This workshop has been CANCELLED.***

In this workshop we will discuss the art of getting close to flowers, plants, and nature. Concepts such as lens selection, magnification ranges, various optical and mechanical methods for getting close, issues of critical focus and depth-of-field, techniques for camera support and vibration control, and much more will be discussed. Opportunities for in class shooting at Bartram’s Garden will help drive home these concepts and open up a whole new world of seeing flowers and plants for students.

The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization devoted to the study, practice, and appreciation of photography in the Philadelphia region. The organization fulfills this mission by offering educational programs, photographic exhibitions, lectures by practicing artists, and affordable access to high-end digital equipment for the creation of photographs. PPAC is a resource for both practicing artists as well as individuals interested in learning about all aspects of contemporary photography. PPAC provides needed technical services and instruction and promotes the relationships and connections that will lead to a more vibrant photography community.
