This summer was both busy and exciting. I held 4 outdoor macro photography workshops for groups of 6 - 7 participants of various skill levels. After a brief overview of macro photo gear, we began by shooting still objects and creatures and progressed onto slowly moving ones: caterpillars and snails, then finally had a blast catching and shooting fast leaping frogs. The excitement level was sky high at this point and most participants didn't want the session to end. The results below speak for themselves.
I sent out an anonymous survey following each session and the responses were overwhelmingly positive. 18 out of 19 respondents said they were very satisfied with the workshop, 14 said the leader was extremely helpful, and everyone rated the value of the session to be excellent or above average. Most participants agreed that they had learned a lot during the 2 hour session and are looking forward to the next one. Everyone appreciated "my silent assistant" Ron Harper but no one as much as I did! I couldn't have done it without him. All of the ratings were higher than the industry norm. Thank you one and all!
I would like to share some of the photos which were taken during the workshop by the participants who gave me permission to post them here on the blog. You can see a very high level of achievement in a very short period of time. The composition, high level of detail brought out by selective focus, and clean, uncluttered backgrounds make these images truly admirable. Congratulations to one and all!
