Marco Photography- Close Up
Filters are an alternative to a macro lens
You can get as close as 3″-6″
(You can experiment on digital cameras using the macro feature designated with a tulip symbol)
Filters sets are usually +1, +2, +4, Macro
The bigger the number, the greater the magnification and the closer you can get to the subject.
REMEMBER: you must attain focus (it will be difficult), But, not everything may be in focus

Being grateful is a habit…what better time to start than at Thanksgiving!
Begin by keeping a gratitude page in your sketchbook.
EVERY DAY write one thing that you are grateful for…nothing is too small or insignificant.
Gratitude + Optimism =HOPE
For more resources on the impact of gratitude on happiness, listen to this podcast by Susan Sarandan
Happy Thanksgiving chickens!
As we begin looking at tools that can be used to retouch/restore damaged photos, check out how they can also be used to retouch models for magazines, billboards, etc.
As you watch this video:
1.identify aspects of Diane Arbus’ work that defy “the rules” of composition
2.make note of images that you find interesting. What, if anything, do they have in common? What images do you not particularly like? Why?
You Tube saves the day again! This technique can also be done with dipping the second strip of film in water, or placing a piece of double stick tape on it.
Light meter is a tool in your camera that tells you if you have enough light to take a picture
We use a reflected light-meter : reads light reflected off subject
Symbols: green dot=correct
red + = over-exposed (too much light)
red – = under-exposed (not enough light)
You are always aiming for “the middle.” If your light meter is reading + or – you need to adjust the fstop and/or shutter speed to get a correct exposure.
Just because you have a correct exposure, DOES NOT mean it will be a “good” picture.
The light meter will change it’s reading based on:
-the value of the subject of your photo
To activate your light meter:
-put batteries in the camera
-turn the camera on
-look through the view finder
-focus on the subject
-depress the shutter release button half way to see the light meter scale
