Feb 8 Macro Photography • Warren Roh

Macro and Close-Up Photography

This class will teach you how to achieve much greater DOF (Depth-of-Field) than typical macro photography does.

For example: A high-end 100mm macro lens, from 10 inches away, at f/32, will produce a DOF of .3 inches.

In the “SINGLE SHOT” below, a DOF of several inches is produced. Learn how!!!


Along with discussing typical macro photography methods, we will discuss using INEXPENSIVE extension tubes, old-school bellows, non-macro wide-angle, telephoto, and film/darkroom enlarger lenses to achieve spectacular close-up and macro results.

This class is a combination of the classroom and hands-on. After the classroom portion, those who wish may participate in a hands-on application of what you have just learned. I will have tiny subjects available for you to shoot.

Suggested Equipment:

• Digital, removable lens camera body or macro capable point and shoot
• Sturdy tripod
• Any lenses you would like to try, can be manual or auto aperture.
• Remote camera trigger or in-camera timer
• Speed light with remote triggering (Optional)
• LED continuous or macro-flash (Optional)

I will have extension tubes, bellow, and lenses to fit Nikon, Canon, Sony, and Leica cameras available for attendees to try.

I will also have a few off-camera flashes, LED lights, and remote triggers available.

You will learn how to achieve amazing sharpness and DOF  “FROM A DISTANCE”.

You may never see these techniques taught anywhere else — Don’t miss it.
