Macro Photography Workshop

Macro Photography Workshop (October 17, 2016: Sunway University)

Macro photography is the art of capturing extremely small subjects in a way they appear greater than their life size in the photograph. Macro photography can be done using dedicated macro lenses which are pretty expensive. However it also can be performed in much lower prices using reverse rings and extension tubes. The decision of using dedicated macro lenses, reversed lenses, extension tubes, or combination of both reversed lenses and extension tubes is determined by various factors including purpose, budget, the required magnification, time, environment and lighting, photographer skills and many others. This workshop looked at the least expensive way of macro photography using reverse ring and extension tubes. This is the most complicated approach to macro photography as the whole process is manual. Although dedicated automatic macro lenses provide more convenience, sometimes manual methods are inevitable especially if higher magnification is desired. By the end of this workshop participants learned to perform manual macro photography in the most affordable way using DSLR cameras.
