Macro Photography Workshop

If you are interested in learning about macro photography and live near Boston, I will be teaching a workshop August 24, 2019 at the Griffin Museum of Photography, located at 67 Shore Road in Winchester.

The workshop will focus on the techniques and challenges of macro photography and include a lecture and outdoor practice. The workshop will run from 10-2pm with a short break in the middle.

Topics will include: equipment review, composition, lighting, field work, & post-processing. After shooting, we will return to the classroom for review. This workshop is geared to photographers who understand the basics of shutter speed, aperture, ISO and shooting in manual or aperture priority mode. A tripod is recommended. Flash is also recommended – artificial lighting will be covered.

They also provide a food source for birds, toads, spiders, wasps, and centipedes.

Cattail Caterpillar

A cattail caterpillar (moth) showing signs of being parasitized.

This occurs when a wasp injects its eggs into a living caterpillar. The wasp larvae will feed on the caterpillar’s fluids and devour their host from the inside, eventually eating their way out of the caterpillar to spin their own cocoons and transform into adults.

Patio Life

There is a mean-looking wasp sitting on the arm of an empty teak chair in my backyard patio. Every day the wasp visits. Why does it keep landing on the chair?

I want answers.

I live in a small town, at least spatially, in Greater Boston. The town is five and a half square miles with 42,000 residents and an abundance of tiny, often unseen critters lurking in its yards—yards measured in square feet, not acres.

With a couple of chairs and a few flowers, a small suburban oasis was created on the patio.

But those wasps…and these tiny spiders that seem to jump into thin air? What else is living around me?

I need answers.

The camera provides an up-close peak at my fellow patio dwellers whose respective behaviors pique my curiosity and intrigue me.

All subjects seen were photographed outdoors in my backyard or front porch; none were harmed.

Whether planting a single flower or large garden—you won’t have to travel far to find interesting neighbors if you look close enough.

If you plant it, they will come.
