advanced photography :: still life & macros1:09 AM
assignment : take a photo of something up close and be mindful of depth of field
Macro photography is one of my favorite things to do. I love getting in close and getting detail. The pointers that I learned in class...
- put oil, glycerin, or water on objects to make them pop.
- using hair spray can create a frost effect
- you can also use glycerin and water mixed together (half and half) to give the same effect.
I love the practical hands on fun. The last hour of this class we spent taking photos of jewelry and flowers using a light tent. (Click here for instructions on making an inexpensive light tent.) All I know is photography can be an expensive hobby!
