Edmonton Macro Photography Class
Intensive Weekend Workshop
Presented by the Burwell School of Photography
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
November 24 - 25, 2012
Join Outdoor Photography Canada Magazine contributing editor and professional photographer, Paul Burwell, for a many-faceted workshop that will immerse you into the world of macro photography. We’ll spend the entire weekend together helping you learn about the aspects of macro photography necessary to produce compelling and well composed images. We’ll discuss the equipment the pros use, technical skills necessary to produce captivating images, learning to find macro photography opportunities, developing a creative vision to separate your photos from the average, choosing the right digital darkroom tools and techniques for selling your images.
This intensive weekend course isn't just about you listening to an instructor drone on and on, its about you getting an opportunity to try out some of the techniques discussed using your own digital camera with macro capabilities or a camera with a macro lens. Paul will be with you every step of the way to help you come away with the best possible images.
