Macro Photography Tips, Techniques, and Gear

Since our next competition subject is macro photography I will be hosting a get-together to cover all sorts of methods, techniques, and gear that you can use to create macro photos. You might be surprised to find out that you don’t necessarily need specialized equipment to come up with some interesting macro photos.

The Spaghetti Warehouse is located at 1911 N 13th St, Tampa, FL 33605

We will meet at the Spaghetti Warehouse in Ybor City on Tuesday night, August 2nd, at 7:00 p.m. You can get some dinner to eat while you take in the presentation. Please leave a reply below if you wish to attend so that I can give the restaurant an idea of how many people to expect that evening.

Let me clarify a few things. It’s not a workshop, I’m giving a presentation for the benefit of any of our members who may need some guidance with respect to equipment and techniques that can be used to take macro photos for our next competition. I will give my presentation at 7:00 pm. People can arrive anytime up until then and may order food if they wish and can eat while watching the presentation if they want to. If anyone wishes to do any shooting before or after they are on their own and welcome to do so.

I apologize for not posting the June images on the web site. I have not had a day off in over 3 months and simply have not had the time to keep up with everything in the manner that I would like to.
