Unlike most close-up and landscape photography, wildlife often requires photographers to react instantly, or miss the shot altogether. This article will help you master those skills.
March 7 – Seminar for WACCO in Milwaukee, WI
March 8 – Macro workshop in Milwaukee, WI
Dixie and I are working on several new photo workshops we plan to add to our schedule in the next year.
Subscribe to our web page to learn about new programs right away. Being experts at close-up photography, we are offering in-depth programs covering macro photography, including one-day photo workshops. We conduct these workshops indoors to eliminate unfavorable weather that would make it difficult to teach important skills. Focus stacking is an enormously important technique that all close-up photographers must master! We teach you how to shoot the "stack" and how to process it.
We are conducting a one-day seminar where we present instructional slide programs on March 7, 2020 in Wisconsin for the Wisconsin Area Camera Club Organization.
Then on March 8, we teach our intensive macro class with a limit of 20 students where we provide wonderful subjects to photograph using setups with pleasing backgrounds and excellent lighting.
We will soon announce the dates for our comprehensive macro class at Robert’s Camera in Indianapolis. We taught this class for Robert’s in 2019, and we are excited to offer this workshop/seminar again n in 2020!

The Ultimate Flash Setup for Hummingbirds
I have enjoyed photographing hummingbirds since 1998 with multiple Speedlites. In order to simultaneously control three or more Speedlites, I have developed a variety of methods to take magnificent hummingbird images.
Back-button Focusing Strategies
Back-button focusing is a technique that allows the photographer to separate autofocus from the shutter button by assigning that role to one or more buttons on the rear of the camera. It is a way to precisely control autofocus that offers a wealth of benefits! Everyone should learn how and when to use it.
