Nature Up Close: Macro-photography Made Easy

January 27 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us for this introduction to macro-photography workshop by professional nature photographer and writer, Jeremy Wolff. Mr. Wolff creates stunning macro images of nature with a point-and-shoot camera and standard iPhoto software. In this workshop he will share his methods for using the camera to see beyond what the naked eye can see. The workshop will begin in the field, looking for subjects and taking pictures. Then we will spend some time indoors reviewing these images on a computer and demonstrating simple cropping and enhancing techniques. Bring your camera and macro lens if you have one, but you can really use any kind of camera.

Almost everything in nature can be fascinating if we attend to it closely. The tools of digital photography allow us to move farther in and discover a world that is barely visible. You don’t have to roam far to find sights of magic and beauty. Seeing comes before shooting: photography is a reason for being in beautiful places at beautiful times, for looking closely and carefully.

Jeremy Wolff’s writing and photography have appeared in Time, Travel & Leisure, The New York Times Magazine, and The New Yorker.   He has created photo-collage art for the Spin Doctors, Soul Asylum, They Might Be Giants, and the Knitting Factory, covers for Newsweek and Fortune, and TV commercials for Coca-Cola and Weber Grills.   He is currently the owner of the Front Street Gallery in Patterson, New York.

Open to total beginners on up to experts. Free for members; a suggested donation of $5 per person for non-members is greatly appreciated. No advanced registration is required.
