What you'll do

As we explore the Orchid Conservatory, Rhododendron and Tropical Plants Houses, we will practice shooting assignments on subjects like composition, depth-of-field and high key/ low key images. In each location we will discuss the technique and students will shoot in real time while receiving feed back from the instructor. Students should expect to take many photos and have additional batteries and memory cards. You are encouraged to bring a macro lens, though telephoto lenses or prime lenses can also produce great results. If you have a modified or macro flash, feel free to bring this as well. Regardless of your amount or type of equipment you will learn how to get the best macro results! Our Macro Workshop takes place from 10am to 12pm. We will then take a short 15 min break before meeting in the Restaurant for our Food Photography Workshop. This workshop is 1 hour long and will teach you how to light, compose and style the perfect food photography. Practice using diffusers and reflectors as well as modified flashes to create a flattering light and eliminate harsh shadows. Each student will have the opportunity to photograph their own plate as well as that of the instructors. As food is not included in the course price, whatever you choose to order is up to you. This provides no limits to what you can photograph and will provide you a whole menu of variety of cuisine.
