Insect Photography Workshop:
Are you interested in:
- learning new techniques for photographing insects and other small invertebrates?
- practicing new tips and tricks for achieving the best photographs?
- discussing strategies for processing and sharing your photographs?
- honing your existing digital macrophotography skills?
Well, now is your chance! The insect taxonomist and photographer, Matt Bertone, will be leading our insect photography workshop on August 26, 2018. Dr. Bertone is the professor responsible for identifying insects at the NCSU Plant Disease and Insect Clinic. His amazing photographs have been used in numerous entomology publications, including most recently the cover of American Entomologist. Check out his photostream on Flickr for examples of his jaw-dropping insect photos.
In our workshop, Dr. Bertone will discuss photography basics and techniques essential for producing visually appealing images of insects and other small animals, both in natural and indoor settings, including: traditional macro, wide-angle macro, studio work, and z-focus stacking. We will also test these techniques during a nature walk and studio session. Only 15 spots are available, so register soon to make sure you get a spot!
