Photography captures the wider world, and with macro photography we go a little closer. In this workshop, we’re using macro photography to discover the hidden world all around us–the little things in the little things.

Sean Murphy, local portrait and wedding photographer, will teach students the best techniques and methods to capture these extreme close-up photographs. Students can take these extreme close-ups by using a DSLR or Mirrorless camera and adding a macro lens OR employ a photography-hack to use an old school film lens to get amazing results.

This class is perfect for all experience levels.
