Following the success of the HDR evening, co-organiser of the Nikon Owner South Coast Group, Adrian Cochrane has kindly offered to lead our May meeting on the subject of Close-up and Macro photography.
“I do not profess to be an expert but hopefully I can offer a few helpful hints and tips. I will be giving a short talk on close-up photography which will be followed by a practical session.”
This will be a unique evening which will specifically focus on close-up and macro photography, one which will provide you with the opportunity of finding out about various techniques as well as putting that information to practical use.
There will be several set-ups in the room to use to make it possible for you to try your hand at close-up photography, as well as at least one laptop with a tether, running Nikon Camera Control Pro2, enabling you to see the results immediately. Please bring your camera and a flash unit if you have one.
