Fine Art Macro Workshop in Chantilly, Virgina

Posted: July 22, 2015 in Uncategorized
Fine Art Macro – From Capture Through Creative Post Processing
I’m excited to offer this brand new macro workshop that is designed to teach you how to create fine art macro images rather than snapshots that just document a subject.
There is a big difference between shooting snapshots and creating something worthy of hanging on the walls of your home. You will receive in-depth learning about the subjects that work best for fine art photography, and how to compose the subjects properly.
Once you learn how to create a fine art macro image, I will teach you how to take it to the next level through post processing options in Photoshop, Nik Software, Topaz, and Smart Photo Editor. I use simple methods that create artistic looking images without getting complicated.
I see so many images posted on the internet that have nice subjects, are composed well, but don’t have the finishing touch of post processing. It’s a big part of digital photography that is as important as the art of capturing an image with the camera.
I’ve had so many photographers ask when I’m going to teach a workshop on the creative side of post processing and here it is. You’ll see the whole process from capturing the subject in the field to the artistic processing that takes place in the digital darkroom.
There will be a few tips on equipment, but this workshop will be mainly about image making and creative processing. You will bring your camera, lens, and tripod as I will have set ups to shoot in the classroom.
If you need a sleeping room at the hotel they have a special rate “Mike Moats Workshop” of $99 for Friday and Saturday nights.

    Mike, How does this compare to the “how to take macro images that don’t suck” workshop? I’m already enrolled in that one in NC in December.

      Beth it’s the same workshop just had to change the name to include the part about the “creative post processing” so people would know the workshop has a lot about post processing.
