Macro photography can be an incredible addition to any photographer’s toolkit, and what better place to hone these skills than under the glass-filtered light of our Conservatory?
Suitable for beginner to intermediate macro photographers, as well as experienced photographers looking for a chance to create images in an exclusive environment, this class begins with an online introduction to macro photography equipment and techniques, followed by a hands-on session in the Conservatory—which begins before Longwood opens to guests.
During the Longwood-based photo shoot, learn how to best choose your subject and obtain sharp focus while using both natural ambient light and added flash. While experimenting with different lighting equipment and setups, gain experience and confidence with the tools and techniques needed to bring your macro skills into sharp focus. An online critique and sharing of photos taken during the onsite session rounds out the experience.
