Charles Needle will show how you can create unusual and striking artistic close-up images both in the field and in your own backyard and/or home studio. Using examples from his own backyard “home studio” and macro workshops, Charles will guide you through all the necessary steps to take your macro photography to the next level, covering topics such as equipment/accessories, selective-focus macro, “shooting through” with a telephoto lens, close-up lenses/diopters, wide-angle macro, water-droplet macro, and using “props,” such as iridescent glass, mylar, and everyday household objects. Charles will also reveal secrets he has learned from his 15+ years of shooting and teaching close-up photography.
Charles Needle is an award-winning, California-based fine art photographer, author, speaker and workshop leader with a unique eye for design and artistic interpretation. His popular “Art of Nature” creative macro workshops have attracted students nationwide.
