Macro Photography Workshops
Does the miniature world of nature fascinate you? Yosemite National Park has an abundance of macro photographic possibilities. Lush mountain meadows harbor wildflowers, butterflies, spiders and many other insects. Capturing these tiny wonders requires specialized photographic tools and techniques. Our macro photo field sessions will reveal how to find and photograph the incredible world of the macro subject. Macro photography can sometimes be a gear intensive facet of photography and our time in the field will reveal the options available. We will consider the advantages of the macro lens, diopters, and extension tubes. We will also cover natural light vs. total flash illumination. Other factors such as flash sync speed, diffusion, and specialized flash brackets will also be explored.
Wildlife Photo Field Sessions
While generally not considered a wildlife photographic destination, Yosemite offers an incredible array of wildlife possibilities. Mule Deer, Coyotes, Black Bears, Woodpeckers and many other species of mammals and birds wait to be photographed in their natural environment. This photo workshop will consider location, animal behavior, lens and tripod selection and other issues confronting the wildlife photographer. Field sessions may be customized to focus on a particular type of wildlife as long as it fits the seasonal habits of the animals and the success of photographing them is reasonable.
