Macro Photography Outdoors with James Wimberg (In-Person Learning – One Session)

  • April 23, 2022
    10:00 am - 6:00 pm

In-Person Learning Class

What’s going on around us in nature? If you stop and look closely at what’s right under your nose, you would be amazed at the beauty that’s there every day. This one-day workshop will introduce students to the intimate world of macro photography outdoors with discussions of technique, aesthetics, hardware and a brief, local field trip.

The instructor will cover the tools for macro photography – traditional macro lenses, extension tubes (close-up rings), bellows attachments, close-up filters, and lens reversal rings. Other tips and tricks include basic lighting principles, portable backgrounds, and digital processing. Additionally, students will gain an appreciation of the aesthetic concerns of macro photography as they relate to traditional ideas of composition, rhythm, and balance within the frame. Students will be encouraged to learn a new way of seeing and to express their vision of the beauty that surrounds us every day.

At the completion of this class, students should be able to appreciate the detailed world of macro photography and know how to execute macro shots in an outdoor setting using their own cameras (even iPhones). Attendees will also be encouraged and instructed on how to do their own digital processing to enhance the images they capture.
 

James Wimberg (https://www.jameswimberg.com/) was born and raised in Connecticut and graduated with a BFA in Printmaking from the University of Connecticut. His interest in photography began during high school with “photo safaris” around his hometown of Old Lyme. Taking pictures of collapsing barns, landscapes and interesting things in nature helped him develop his eye for light and composition. After graduation Jim moved to Los Angeles to pursue commercial photography.
