When: Saturday, September 13, 2014 from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM



See the beauty of Fairchild up close and personal. We will explore, discover and photograph the ecosystem at Fairchild by focusing on the small beautiful details in flowers, leaves and insects. In this class, instructor Pedro Lastra will teach you how to use your equipment to capture the small wonders of the Garden. During this session you will cover the technical issues that must be learned in order to master macro photography as well as review basic concepts of effective composition. This class will not cover basic camera operations. Sturdy tripods and cameras with interchangeable lenses or point–and–shoot cameras with close-up settings and user-adjustable settings are strongly recommended. A macro lens is highly desirable. If you do not own a macro lens, students will need a good close-up lens (one that allows you to fill your frame with subjects four inches in length). This class is appropriate for students 18 years of age and older.

7:00 to 10:00 a.m.

Section A: Saturday, September 13

Fee: Member, $40; Non-member, $60
