On Wednesday, June 19 at 6:30 pm, Peggy Boike make a presentation on Macro Photography. She will explain what macro photography is and what equipment is useful. She will also discuss techniques for creating appealing photos, such as dealing with macro’s notoriously narrow depth of field and recognizing good lighting. Finally, she will cover basic composition as it is applied to macro photography.
Peggy is very active in the Photographic Society of America (PSA) and was recognized as “Volunteer of the Year” in 2018. She has earned PSA’s “MPSA” distinction, requiring at least 1,500 acceptances in international exhibitions. She also judges international exhibitions. She is a member of three Camera Clubs: St. Paul Camera Club and St. Croix Valley Camera Club in Minnesota, as well as Grand Photos, in Surprise, Arizona, where she and her husband spend the winter months. She has given numerous presentations, workshops and classes for photography clubs in Minnesota and Arizona.
After the break, Bryan Leonard will share information on his macro experience and equipment, Carl Wegener will discuss his lighting kit and there will be hands-on shooting opportunities if time allows. Si bring your gear!
