For the workshop, I like to do it in three segments:
- Lecture and tutorial time
- Hands-on workshop time
- Image review and critique
In the lecture time, I'll discuss the photographic and creative process for macro photography.
There are MANY challenges, and we'll discuss them all with the notion that we will quickly be encountering them.
This lecture period will take an hour or two, depending on the questions and interactions with participants.
Depending on total time, some of this might be revisited later, after the hands-on time.
The hands-on time will be used to explore some tabletop macro subjects, including water droplets and refraction.
This concept is always a fun idea to explore, and it can be accomplished by nearly everyone with proper instruction.
Weather permitting we might have a chance to explore other subjects (snowflakes), and I'll make sure there are plenty of flowers on hand to explore various lighting and stability techniques - as well as for backdrops on the refractions.
This exercise will introduce all the participants to the challenges involved in macro photography, and hopefully learn the techniques required to overcome them.
The critique period is equally valuable. Every participant submits a photograph and I'll review them with the help of everyone else to offer constructive feedback and discuss the challenges and successes of the day.
Does this overview sound interesting for everyone? As discussed, I'd put a maximum number of participants at 20.
