We open with a quick overview of a few different methods, lighting, and equipment, as well as explanations and techniques of working with specimen insects. We’ll go over off-camera lighting and light painting techniques and other options. Then a short demonstration to show actual methods, creative options, and how these affect your overall images.
Hands-on practice: Several stations will be set up for participants to photograph different insect subjects. For the hands-on portion we will be using constant light set-ups or light-painting options. (Insects, set-ups, and backgrounds are provided)
Afterward, there will be a quick session of editing the images in Lightroom and Photoshop, to show a workflow option and how to stack images and enhance them. This will be followed by a short Q&A if needed.
