In this two-day workshop, we will cover a wide variety of macro shooting-equipment options as well as the technical aspects of shooting macro in indoor and outdoor, artificial and natural light settings. We will then begin the exercises on making your macro photos unique, by thinking outside of the box, and putting a creative touch to each one by use of light, shadow, and special techniques Amy uses in the field. 

We will shoot inside and outside, with a field trip on the second day.
