"MACRO: HOW TO ACHIEVE IMPACT"
Presented by: Michel BURY
November 18, 2019
Macro photography gives us access to the fascinating world of small subjects in nature, like flowers, insects, and amphibians. However, this type of photography has specific technical and artistic challenges. This lecture will explain the gear required to achieve images with a reproduction ratio of up to 1:1 and the essential technical notions specific to macro. But, more importantly, it will show you how to add impact to your macro shots. The main themes that will be addressed are the use of the chromatic wheel, managing the narrow depth of field and the reproduction ratio, making the most of the compositional techniques, and selecting your subjects.
Michel Bury’s photographs have won several prizes in Canada. He also received the 1st prize in the 2012 International Photo Contest “Festival de l’oiseau.” His images have been published on a regular basis in several magazines, among which are Nature’s Best Photography, Outdoor Photography Canada, Canadian Geographic, Nature sauvage, and Accueil Nat’Images.
