Workshop: Taking Great Close-up Images Indoors Using Natural Light

Taking Great Close-up Images Indoors Using Natural Light

Paul Peterson has once again agreed to give this always popular workshop, in which he shares his techniques of taking striking close-up (macro) images of flowers.

Paul will begin by explaining his techniques for lighting, using natural light, use of backgrounds and other techniques he has perfected over the years. This will be a hands-on workshop, so please bring your camera, a tripod and a macro lens if you have one. If you don’t have a macro lens, just bring what you have. Some of the flowers are large enough that they don’t really require a macro lens. Paul will have flower setups in a number of stations in his home, so everyone will have ample opportunity to try their hand using his techniques. If you’d like, you may bring a bloom or two. No live creepy crawlies, please!

The workshop will be held on Saturday, April 14 at 8AM. To sign up, please email me at I will send out an email with directions to Paul’s home in a few days to all who have signed up. (If you have already signed up at the camera club, no need to contact me again).

Please note that workshops are FREE, but you do need to be a member to attend workshops (and to compete images and to participate on field trips)
