This is a unique photo conference dedicated to macro photography. I’ve always wanted to design a program where highly experienced photographers could come together and teach their skills in macro photography and post processing techniques to those who want to learn and advance their macro photography to the next level. As a photographer, I specialize only in macro photography, and I’m not into other styles of photography. Our instructors for this conference are all accomplished photographers in many styles, but they were chosen for their abilities to produce great macro images.
This Macro Photo Conference will have plenty of how-to lectures and about five hours of photographing with varying subject matter. The speakers and instructors will be available to help participants with composing subjects and technical aspects. The ratio will be 8 participants to 1 instructor so you should not have a problem finding help if you need it. So you just need to bring your camera, macro lens, and tripod, and we will take care of making you better macro photographer.
Along with learning how to be a better macro photographer, John Barclay will demonstrate some of the great post processing programs available to take your images to the next level.
Leading New England photo retailer Hunt’s Photo will be there selling lots of photo products. Tamron will have tech reps on hand with lenses available for you to try out.
Mike Moats
There will be a limit of 100 participants, and it should sell out quick.
