      Macro & Food Photography Workshop

      In this unique course you will master shooting macro photography! All of our courses are designed for all camera types and skill levels. We tailor each course to fit our students' interests and needs.  We will meet our guests at the entrance of the Vallarta Botanical Garden at 10:00 am and walk to the La Llorona covered bridge for our introduction. We will have a brief lecture on settings and equipment as well as a lighting and white balance demonstration. Admission to the Vallarta Botanical Garden is included in the course fees. Transportation is not included, please contact us for directions via bus.  As we explore the Orchid Conservatory, Rhododendron and Tropical Plants Houses, we will practice shooting assignments on subjects like composition, depth-of-field and high key/ low key images. In each location we will discuss the technique and students will shoot in real time while receiving feed back from the instructor. Students should expect to take many photos and have additional batteries and memory cards. You are encouraged to bring a macro lens, though telephoto lenses or prime lenses can also produce great results. If you have a modified or macro flash, feel free to bring this as well. Regardless of your amount or type of equipment you will learn how to get the best macro results!   Students will also learn information on focus modes, ISO, histograms, focal lengths and lenses, and how to compensate for environmental conditions including lighting and weather, We will wrap up the lesson in the butterfly garden practicing continuous focus and fast shutter speeds.  Our Macro Workshop takes place from 10am to 12pm. We will then take a short 15 min break before meeting in the Restaurant for our Food Photography Workshop. This workshop is 1 hour long and will teach you how to light, compose and style the perfect food photography. Practice using diffusers and reflectors as well as modified flashes to create a flattering light and eliminate harsh shadows.  Each student will have the opportunity to photograph their own plate as well as that of the instructors, other participating students, or your non-photography guests! As food is not included in the course price, whatever you choose to order is up to you. This provides no limits to what you can photograph and will provide you a whole menu of variety of cuisine for both your dining delight and subject matter for your camera lenses.  The Vallarta Botanical Garden is a jewel of the Puerto Vallarta region beaming with nature, information and culture. Your admission to the Garden will cover you for the entire day (usually open from 9 am to 6 pm), so you can continue exploring even after the workshop.
