Class Code:
UUU8247
Skill Level:
Everyone

This in-depth Q&A macro photography seminar with Roman Kurywczak will show you the technical tips and tricks needed to take your macro photography to the next level!

Many people are comfortable with creating shallow focus macro images, but Roman will show you how to achieve consistently sharp images with maximum depth of field all in a single frame! Topics covered will range from gear to specific settings for you to maximize your time spent out in the field. Overcoming distracting backgrounds will be discussed in depth with photographic examples showing you how easy they are to overcome. The use of natural light will be covered, but a heavy emphasis will be placed on using flash correctly in the field to properly balance the exposure and achieve dramatic results.

We'll also look at some frequently used tricks by the pros that you can easily apply in the field to quickly improve your macro skills. Many of these tips and tricks are inexpensive and can be done using the gear you already own! During the entire lecture, you can ask questions to ensure that you go home with a better understanding of all the topics covered in the program and create tack sharp macro images of your very own.

ROMAN KURYWCZAK started Roamin’ with Roman Photo Tours a little over 12 years ago for the sole purpose of running boutique instructional photographic workshops. As a nature photographer, Roman got his start as a landscape photographer, but he has expanded on his skills to include the world of macro, bird, and wildlife photography over the last 30 years.

Roman's workshops cater to photographers who don’t want to get lost in a crowd. He strives to provide a unique photographic experience while maintaining a social environment with a high level of fun and energy for those who share a passion for photography. Roman has maintained group sizes of only 4 on US based tours to maximize your learning experience and provide you the utmost in personal attention.

The company has since grown to include international destinations, but the satisfaction Roman gets from teaching remains one of his most memorable photographic achievements.
