SIMSBURY CAMERA CLUB MONTHLY MEETING: ART VAUGHAN – “POP UP” FLASH MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY

12/04/2012
7:00 pm
Simsbury Public Library
 
In this program, photographer Art Vaughan describes a process for shooting macro photographs using lighting provided by the standard ‘pop-up’ flash found on many cameras. Using a simple home-made support bracket and a variety of close-up lenses, extension tubes, or stacked add-on lenses, anyone can produce amazing macro images having true ‘studio’ quality lighting, for a fraction of the cost of a system utilizing multiple flashes, ring lights, or expensive factory made support brackets. The set-up described provides maximum portability for hunting down and following small insects and spiders who aren’t going to sit still for photographers using cumbersome tripods. The program includes images made using all of the techniques described, and concludes with a pop-up flash macro demonstration. Anyone wishing to explore the world of macro photography and wanting to get top notch and very satisfying results should consider attending. This program is free and open to all – you do not need to be a Simsbury Camera Club member to attend. You may register at 860-658-7663 x2200 or www.simsburylibrary.info or just drop in!
