Some of the fifteen KCPS members trying out various macro techniques and equipment

It was another very interesting session on Monday night, with lots of experimenting with close-up techniques and equipment.  Many thanks to Ian and Hugh for bringing along special gear, and to Hugh for his opening presentation. The notes he handed out are available on our RESOURCES page.

Homework for the next Development Group session is to work on photographing just one or two small objects. Try several versions of each, and be ready to talk about the issues you struck, how you tried to deal with them, and bring the resulting questions you still have. Then we can have a good round-table session offering help.  The images don’t need to have a lot of post processing. It’s the taking stage of things we will be concentrating on. The session is on 5 November, so I’m sure it will go off with a bang well.
