Tutorial: Budget and DIY Macro Photography

Date: 15/4/2016

Imagine what the world would look like if you were the size of an insect. There would be so many details that you’ve never noticed before, cool things that you’ve never seen and everything would appear from an entirely new perspective!

Zoom in to the world of macro photography this Friday, as Charlotte and Boaz teach you all you need to take amazing macro photos. Learn practical tips covering everything from how to frame your subjects to how to approach insects without them flying away.

They’ll also be covering several hacks and DIY methods you can use to achieve great magnifications without breaking your budget on an expensive macro lens. You can even shoot macro on your mobile phone!
