Macro Photography with Tony North

Thursday 10th March 2022;  We have a talk by Tony North
Tony will be speaking via zoom from his home in Manchester and we will be broadcasting in the clubroom and will also be broadcast on our live streaming system.

This talk is about my experience and knowledge of macro photography in the field, shooting insects and other invertebrates. It covers my philosophy and approach to photography as an art. I will of course show lots of my best macro images, but the talk is about far more than a set of pretty pictures.
The topics covered are:
1. A brief introduction to me, my background and experience, and why I chose to focus on macro
2. The aims of my photography, in terms of style and purpose.
3. How to create beautiful macro photos. This is the main substance of the talk, and it covers 7 challenges in macro and how to overcome them:
i. Finding and getting close to the subject
ii. Depth of field
iii. Camera movement
iv. Subject movement
v. Shutter speed/light
vi. Composition/bokeh
vii. Post processing
