In this course,
I will show you how to do macro photography.

I will show you the macro photography gear that you need. Also ways to do macro photography if you don’t have all the gear I talk about.

You don’t have to be an expert in photography.  You don’t need all the latest professional camera gear, DSLR that I use.

Photography is photography and it’s all the same.
What you will learn still applies whether you’re a beginner or an expert, regardless of what equipment you use.

There’s certain fundamentals of macro photography we will talk about.
Certain things that we do differently than in other forms of photography.

So we’re going to talk about what those are.
We’re going to look at pictures that I’ve taken.
And we’re going to analyze, and I’m going to walk you through the thought process on what I am thinking as I take each one of these pictures.

We’re going to do some projects. Not very difficult.
You don’t need anything fancy gear.

All I want you to do is go out and take some pictures.
But when you’re taking these pictures, I want you to think, I want you to apply what you learned in the course.

After this course, You will see the world in a whole new way and your pictures will go from being snapshots to a thing of beauty.

I look forward to seeing your pictures in the project section.

If you’re ready. Let’s get started.
