Join us on July 27 for a Zoom meeting with Mike Matthews, who will be giving us a double feature—“Macro Photography and Bird Photography.” Here’s what Mike says we can expect:

Macro photography: The small but beautiful world. Exploring this small world can be simply amazing, seeing detail that is not visible to the naked eye. I will help you understand how the use of flash can free you from your tripod both indoors and out. Other features:

  • Photographing greater than one to one and exploring extreme macro opportunities using a macro rail for focus stacking
  • Using Zerene Stacker for blending multiple images to obtain maximum sharpness front to back
  • Understanding lens choices and settings to get the most from your macro lens.
  • How to use flash perfectly when only inches from your subject.
  • How to protect the highlights from blowing out in your pictures.
  • Equipment options for macro photography.
  • How to get maximum depth of field and sharpness for small subjects.

Birdwatching through the lens of your camera: I will help you to understand bird behavior and when is the best time to photograph. Other features:

  • The use of Auto ISO to get tack sharp images of birds in flight.
  • The use of flash for photographing hummingbirds.
  • Changing your backgrounds to get a more pleasing image.
  • Props and food choices for backyard bird photography.
  • Changing your backgrounds to get a more pleasing image.
