The camera club ran a Macro / Close up photography workshop on Sunday 22 March at our new meeting place, Mixtape Creative at 4/47 Station Road.
There was an informal session covering the general theory of macro / close – up photography, equipment, lighting and camera techniques, followed by a short practical session photographing some small static subjects.
Participants brought their cameras, close – up / macro lenses or a good zoom or standard lens, and tripods.
The workshop was hosted by our macro guru Peter Sanderson and an enthusiastic crowd took pictures of anything small and photogenic that happened to get in the way of their lenses. Some of the images that participants took can be viewed in an album on the club Flickr site at www.flickr.com/photos/margaretrivercameraclub/
