Macro Photography Meetup

Macro Photography Meetup

Saturday 04 February
Roseville, CA - 9am - 2 Hours
Macro photography is a unique form of photography that involves photographing small objects to make them look life-sized or more significant in the photo. The usual subjects include flowers and small insects, which we don't normally get to see up close with the naked eye. The class will start when the insects are more active. So be ready to explore and capture breathe-taking macro images.

Sunset Photography

Sunset Photography

Saturday 18 March
Folsom, CA - 6pm - 2 Hours
Focus on capturing the horizon as the sky changes. Sunset photography is a bit of a funny one really. It is harder than it looks, but is often one of the first things that beginners like to try. More often than not though, the exposure needs work, and the post-processing needs additional work. Join us at this meetup to learn how to take those beautiful sunset shots.
