Aperture, Close up & Macro Workshop in Secunda (Sunday 07 July 2019)

An in depth study of Aperture 


Aperture is a beautiful creative tool when used properly. Macro and Close-up photography is showcasing the world in a different and unique way. This workshop will teach you how to do this – brilliantly.

On the Workshop you will learn the following:

  • What you can achieve from each Aperture stop.
  • Understanding why Macro has its own lens and how to get close up if you don’t have one
  • How to create a shallow depth of field
  • How and when to have everything in focus
  • How to keep you colours ‘true’ and all the stop.

On all of the Workshops we will have Olympus Mirrorless Cameras and Sigma Lenses with a Canon and a Nikon Mount.

Sunday 07 July 2019. 08h00 – 11h30.
