About the event

Spend a fascinating day learning how to photograph items very close up. The technique of macrophotography is expertly taught by Adrian Davies, www.adriandaviesimaging.com. He will guide you throughout the day. With his knowledge and experience you will discover new ways of taking photographs.

Any camera with the ability to change the shutter and aperture settings will be suitable for this course, however a DSLR with interchangeable lenses or Bridge camera will have more potential, particularly for close-up photography. Do bring any lenses that you have with you so that we can discuss their suitability for various subjects.

If you have one,bring along a tripod, as light levels can be quite low, particularly in woodland. Make sure you have a fully charged battery and plenty of space on your memory card to safely store your photographs.

He co-wrote, with Phil Fennessy, one of the first text books on digital imaging (Electronic Imaging for Photographers, 1994) a title which ran to 4 editions. He has since written several other books and dozens of articles for various magazines.

Adrian has been photographing all aspects of wildlife and natural history for over 30 years, both in the UK and abroad. Increasingly, he is covering environmental issues such as the effects of global warming, and the effect of alien species in the British countryside. He is also currently looking at how plants and other natural history subjects appear in ultraviolet light, and is in the latter stages of writing a book on Digital Ultraviolet and Infrared Photography His pictures have appeared in hundreds of books and magazines.
