Closeup Photography Tip

It is the first tip after a short break. I just came back from a pleasant and relaxing vacation. During one of my trips, I met a photographer who was struggling with Closeup Photography. Therefore, I decided to share some tips on Closeup Photography AKA Macro Photography.

Rule 1: Use a tripod to keep the camera steady. 

Rule 2: Never shot slower than 1/60 sec. A little breeze or movement can make the picture BLURRY!

Rule 3: I would never use the wide-open aperture for closeup photography. In Macro Photography, the Depth Of Field is already very shallow. I use f11 or higher to support an expanded focusing range.

Rule 4: When possible, use a light modifier, such as a flash or a light-disk, to fill the shadows.

We offer many fun and hands-on photography classes. All of our photography programs consist of practical and up to date skills. Therefore, you learn the latest techniques in a friendly environment; and since the class size is small, there is plenty of time for exercising.

Do you want to take better pictures?

Omnilargess Photography workshops focus on many hidden features in digital cameras and editing software. These hidden features assist photographers in taking their photography skills to the next level.

I dedicate a good portion of our digital camera workshops and Editing classes to discuss these hidden features.

Digital Camera Crash Course is one of our most popular photography courses. This two-week program is in four sessions, and each session consists of theories and hands-on practices.

Our next Digital Camera Crash Course starts on September 26th, 2020. There are only a few spots left.

We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.
