Macro Workshop

I held a macro workshop for The South Coast Sanctuaries, Allens Pond and Great Neck, this weekend.  I only had one participant, who really enjoyed it and is ready to participate in another workshop, and will try to bring some friends along.
The workshop started on Friday night with a presentation at the field station at Allens Pond about macro photography, equipment, ideas, and other helpful hints to help the participants enable their work.

Eckla Beach Rolly can be purchased at Outdoor Photo Gear click info at right
after placing the equipment in my Eckla Beach Rolly Gear Cart (great for carrying gear and will travel over uneven surfaces with ease) and setting up, we went off to photograph. We mainly concentrated on Tree bark, moss and fungi. The morning was overcast and it rained the night before, which added to the color of the subjects
