Susi's workshop opens up a whole new world of creativity. One you didn't even know was there!
For many photographers, the world of macro photography is uncharted terrain. Surprising subjects and interesting compositions are often waiting to be found – right under your tripod! With a bit of theory, insight and technical preparation, you’ll be amazed at your ability to capture unique close up photographs of mushrooms, insects, abstract textures and much more.
A forest on the edge of Zurich will serve as our autumn laboratory during this one-day photography field trip. Expert macro photographer Susanne Venditti will help you to recognise great photo opportunities and will guide you in composing stronger images in this unique forrest landscape. Join Susanne for an exploration into the often overlooked world of macro photography, right in Zurich’s own backyard.
Forest location within 30 minutes drive of Zurich.
Van transport provided by Viewfinder. After our lunch break we’ll drive to the forest in Viewfinder’s company van. Once we’ve wrapped up our shoot there will be a van drop-off back at the Zurich HB.
This day trip is open to all photographers. We recommend that participants have a basis of fundamental photography knowledge, such as that which is covered in our popular Digital Photography 1-2-3 Course.
You will need to bring your own camera and macro lens to this course. We recommend dSLR or mirrorless type cameras, but the most important factor is that your lens is capable of true “close-up” focusing. Susanne recommends the 100mm macro lens (Canon) or 105mm macro (Nikon). That said, any macro lens will do and you may want to take this course before buying any new macro equipment.
We’ll take a group lunch break at midday.
Minimum of six participants, maximum 11.
Susanne Venditti (lead instructor) and Matt Anderson.
Registration closes three days before event.
This event takes place rain or shine.
Susi's creativity and passion are contagious. With her instruction, my macro photography skills have been taken to the next level.
Susi opened my eyes to a miniature world, that I had never even really seen or noticed before. In a few hours, she added a whole new side to my photography.
