23rd October: Macro and Close-up Workshop led by Julia Wainwright ARPS DPAGB

Julia began the evening with a short presentation covering the basics/differences between macro and close-up photography, the different lens/equipment options etc. before we set off in teams to photograph five different table-top set-ups, each with their own challenges in terms of subject matter, lighting and composition.  Julia thoughtfully provided an example photograph as a guide and goal.   After the practical session, the teams’ top three photos were projected and reviewed in open discussion.  A thoroughly enjoyable and educational evening.

Many thanks Julia for all your hard work – it is very much appreciated.
