macro photographers

Discussion in 'Art and design' started by pantomime horse, Jan 30, 2011.

  1. Hi,
    Can anyone recommend any good macro photographers? Has anyone completed a GCSE project looking at close-up photography? I was thinking of doing this as a project with some pupils - advice and ideas based upon your experiences would be very much appreciated!
    Thanks[​IMG]

  4. Hi
    You could get students to set up a simple light box for their macro shots - we made one in a single lesson using a white drape and cardboard box - its really easy to do and the results are amazing:

    Ideally, you want just the lens poking through a hole in the box but we didnt have time and it didnt suit the lens that my student was using at the time. I have softboxes in my classroom but window light (on a bright day obviously) or desk lamps would also work fine. Students could experiment using tin foil too to create more abstract reflections. Please email me some of the results and I'll post them on my site (you can use the contact form on the site)
    Have fun!
