MACRO & PROXI PHOTO WORKSHOP

Offered in July and August, a period particularly rich in diversity and colors (dragonflies, batrachians, flowers, butterflies, grasshoppers and crickets…), the workshop covers some basics of photography according to the level of each participant.
Then it's the field and the practical exercises that guide the half-day! All you need is a piece of garden of a few square meters and a “basic” lens to take great pictures!
Even if you are not a fan of small animals (which may change after this course), the macro is an excellent way to progress in photography.
It appeals to your sense of creativity and your own sensitivity.
