Photography: Intro to Macro

PHOT 1945

This hands-on introductory workshop will introduce you to the world of close up/macro photography. This type of photography is becoming more and more popular and opens up a whole new creative world to the photographer. You will look at the different ways to get up close to your subject, how to light your subject, controlling depth of field, and finding suitable subjects to photograph up close, plus a variety of tips that will help you to photograph insects, plants and still life objects. Be sure to bring your camera, tripod (if you have one) and any close up equipment that you might own for some hands on practice. Note: you do not need to own a macro lens for this workshop. This class is suitable for digital SLR and mirrorless cameras only.


Due to the pandemic, this course will not be taught in-class at the Oshawa or Whitby campuses. Instead, the instructor will deliver the course online using Zoom or another platform during the normally-scheduled class time. Assignments and tests will be posted using our Desire2Learn Learning Management System (called DC Connect). Therefore, students will need a computer with a webcam, audio and reliable high-speed Internet connectivity to participate. Due to the ongoing pandemic, we cannot predict at this time if/when we will resume in-class delivery for this course. Tuition includes a $13 non-tax deductible fee.
