Close Up: Macro Photography: Art, Techniques and Beyond

Back by popular demand! In this compact yet thoughtful class, we discuss the art of getting close. Perfect for the artistic-minded close-up photographer, this class will introduce you to new techniques, tools, and lenses for extreme close-up photography. Your Instructor, Laszlo Perlaky, will demonstrate how to take close-ups using a DSLR camera or with any point and shoot or cell phone camera, in combination with different magnifiers and lenses from Home depot or plastic lenses from Dollar store. Students will see Perlaky’s demo setups and look at selections of fine art close-up images as examples taken with unusual, inexpensive lenses. Learn to determine magnification and working—your camera’s standard lens—instead of expensive professional lenses with HCP!
