Before his presentation in the evening, eight Club members met Steve Hedges at Hunstanton beach for a half day workshop. Many of the tips Steve mentioned in the evening talk were ones that the group had practised and mastered earlier.
Steve's presentation began by identifying different equipment for macro photography. He then illustrated several techniques for achieving the correct depth of field - quite often this was a matter of millimetres. For situations where you can't get the depth of field in camera, then Steve showed examples of focus stacking. To finish off the macro section, we saw examples of different lighting and the effect they produced. The evening finished with some examples of garden photography with emphasis on strong compositions.
Over the afternoon and evening, Steve shared his knowledge and now it's up to us to apply it to our own work.
You can see examples of Steve's work on his website here .
And here are some examples of photographs taken by club members during the afternoon at Hunstanton.
