Because of the large amount of subject matter I have to cover with limited time in the macro boot camps, I’m never able to really get very deep into the subject of image making. We do a two hour shoot on Saturday and everyone is pretty much on their own to compose and shoot lots of subjects. On Sunday morning when I ask them how they did on the two hour shoot, I see the disappointment in their faces when they tell me they got maybe one good image, and many say they didn’t like any of their images. So if you ask them if they felt that their images “sucked” from that shoot, I’m willing to bet they would agree with that term. This new workshop is designed to help improve their percentage of successful images and make their experience with photography more fun. Most are pretty good with their equipment, but not so with their image making.

Learn To Create Macro Images That Don’t Suck Workshop.

Have you noticed how some photographers create one great image after another? What do they know that all the other photographers don’t? This is a different kind of workshop that is designed to teach you all about how to make successful images. See how images are captured from the start in the field, and then taken right through the all-important post processing steps. We will analyze all the aspects of why images work and don’t work, and lots of post processing. Learn about what filters in Nik Software and Topaz works best with textures, contrast, light, and lines in images. This workshops is for those who have attended my Macro Boot Camps, or anyone who is experienced with their camera and in need of help taking their image making to another level. Bring your camera, macro lens, and tripod, as you will have some shooting assignments in the classroom.

    Hi Mike,

    Will you be taking this workshop to other areas around the country? – hopefully New York or New Jersey. Would go to Delaware or Maryland too. Actually VT or NH could work too……

      Susan, I’m doing some test areas where I have a done a lot of macro boot camp and seeing is this workshop pulls some of those people in to fill these. If they go well then yes it will be offered in all of the areas you mentioned, but wouldn’t happen until 2016. Thanks, and hope you can make it if it comes to these areas.

    Hi Mike,

    I see from a previous post that you may be coming east if these workshops go well. I certainly hope they do for my own selfish reason that I’d really like to attend one. And thanks for constantly changing your workshops to help us all to learn and improve.
