We will explore the tools and techniques used to create beautiful Macro images. How to capture small insects, intricate surface textures, water droplets, and anything else you would like to learn about! Lenses, camera settings and locations will be discussed to help you be successful with planning and capture. We will then explore some post processing techniques to overcome technical limitations such as focus stacking images to compensate for narrow depth of field. I will then share some personal insights from my own efforts and best practices to carry forward.
