Macro Photography: A Closer Look

If you thought the expression “big things come in small packages,” was just something your loved ones told you when they were making excuses for buying you small Christmas presents, think again. In the world of photography, big things really do come in small packages. To help you unwrap these big photographic gifts, we offer a workshop dedicated to teaching you how to get started – and make a huge splash with – your own macro photography.

Led by longtime RMSP instructors and macro aficionados, Elizabeth Stone and Tony Rizzuto, Macro Photography: A Closer Look takes place July 1 – 6, 2012 in Missoula, MT. This week long experience is your chance to dedicate yourself and your curiosity to nothing but macro photography. The dynamic duo of Tony and Elizabeth start with the basics and don’t look back.  From composition to specialized equipment to lighting techniques, they roll out the educational red carpet for you! Many photographers choose to explore flowers with their macro lenses, and on this workshop you will too – from shooting a bouquet in a studio setting to flowers crawling over the grounds of a local nursery.

If you are interested in pursuing your curiosity or existing passion for macro photography, I encourage you to give us a call to discuss the details. As of today (3-14-2012) there are four spots remaining in this workshop. Remember, as with every RMSP workshop, you can take advantage of our early bird discount of $50 if you register before the early registration date, which in this case is April 2, 2012.


In the meantime, check out these macro images taken by Tony and Elizabeth. Yeah … i’d say these two know a thing or two about macro!
