Program and contents of the workshop

This fascinating workshop focuses on macro photography, a photographic genre that requires some technical knowledge but can give the photographer great satisfaction and, above all, strong emotions. The micro world consists of tiny or invisible subjects, but thanks to the use of techniques that extend the depth of field, such as focus stacking, it becomes possible to capture detailed images full of charm.

One of the advantages of macro photography is that you can get interesting images anywhere, able to isolate and highlight the shapes and colors of the subject and give it an environmental context. The only limit to macro photography is our imagination. Small animals, facial details, eyes, insects, flowers, rocks, minerals, dew drops, ice and snow are just some of the subjects we can capture. However, for each subject it is necessary to use the right equipment and technique.

In this course you will learn how to make the most of your equipment, which is not necessarily suited to macro photography, and how to use special equipment to give shape to your ideas and develop your personal style. By the end of this course, extension tubes, extra lenses, reproduction scales, life-size, macro and ultra-macro lenses, special flashes, plamps, micrometric slides and focus stacking will be part of your technical background.
