Fascinated by photos of insects, flowers and fungi? My Close-up and Macro Nature Photography workshop is ideal for you!
Exploring techniques, discussing equipment, covering when and how to use flash, this workshop can make a huge difference to how you see the world.
Starting at 10.00am and running through to 4.00pm, the workshop benefits participants with any level of knowledge, using most types of camera, including compacts, bridge cameras, mirrorless and SLRs.
We look at the approach and techniques needed for different subjects, lenses and accessories, the use of flash, and focus stacking, getting you consistently better close-up and macro shots whatever equipment you have. A classroom session in the morning guides you through the technical aspects, and a practical session in the afternoon puts it all to use, with 1-2-1 tuition for everyone.
With a maximum of 10 participants, and great value at just £70 per person, this is the best workshop you can attend in Essex to learn how to take better close-up and macro photos.

This workshop covers techniques and approach for different subjects, whether stationary or potentially moving, as well as lens and accessory choice, use of flash, and controlling and achieving the required depth of field.
It provides a good grounding in close-up and macro photography, with an emphasis on nature subjects, but applicable to any subject.
A basic understanding of your camera is useful, as controlling the shutter speed and aperture can be the key to technically good macro shots, take a look at my 'Know The Basics/Learn To Control Your Camera' workshop if you need some help with this.
The Close-up and Macro Nature Photography workshops cost £70 per person, with a maximum of 10 participants.
The workshop runs for 6 hours (including lunch break), and includes an indoor slideshow and discussion in the morning. This is followed by a practical outdoor session in the afternoon.
Everyone gets some 1-2-1 time in the afternoon, which can be used to address any aspect of your camera, photography, or anything else you wish to cover.

"I’ve been on 3 of Daniel’s workshops and they’ve all been amazing. He is so patient and is brilliant at explaining even the more technical side of things. After each workshop I’ve been inspired to pick up my camera and go places I wouldn’t have done before. Definitely recommend." Laura Llewellyn via Trustpilot
