Join the online Macro Photo Club

Posted: November 29, 2017 in Uncategorized
As a pro macro photographer, I have always wanted to create an online Macro Photo Club, and it’s finally happened.
The Macro Photo Club is a place where members will experience a new way of learning. Members will have lots of benefits and fun.
The 1st of each month, members will have a link to 12 videos that will cover a variety of themes, plus a video newsletter. Finding subjects in the field, how to compose them, and working the camera techs. Videos covering equipment and post processing tips will also be covered.
Members may send me one image per month, and with the entries I will choose 10 images for a video critique.
I have a facebook group set up for members to post images. In the monthly video newsletter, I will have a macro theme for you to go out and shoot, and members can post their images of that theme on the Mike Moats Macro Photo Club site on facebook.
I will randomly choose club members to be featured macro photographers on my website blog, and all social media connections.
The Macro Photo Club has some great sponsors who are generously offering free products that I will raffle off. Present sponsors, Tamron, Hunts Photo, Vanguard, Acratech, Lensbaby, Topaz, Wimberley, Hoodman, Lens Flipper, Think Tank Photo, Datacolor, Thompson Photo Accessories, and adding more in the future.
This is just the beginning and hope to expand to more benefits as we go.
Yearly membership fee is only $39.

Everyone who has photographed in the outdoors with a digital camera knows that trying to view your images on the LCD screen on a sunny bright days, it’s almost impossible to see the image.   I like to be able to view what I just shot,  or when using the live view for focusing on the LCD, it’s a must to have a Hoodman Loupe to block out the harsh light so you can see the image on the LCD. If you haven’t bought one because of the price, here is your chance to get it at a lower price.
