About This Class

In this class, we'll look at three different ways to get your camera close (very close) to your subject:

1) Using close up filters

2) Using macro extension tubes

3) Using a macro lens

This class is intended for students with some photographic experience, but are looking to expand their skills out of the ordinary and into macro photography. Some photographic knowledge is assumed. It's assumed you know how to operate your DSLR camera, for example. For the project, you'll also need to have access to one or more of the tools we discuss in the class.
