Ticket Registration

Samy’s Camera is pleased to host Sigma ambassador Heather Larkin for this two-part workshop at Samy’s Camera in Pasadena & Descanso Gardens.

Heather will share tips and tricks on macro photography, then lead a macro photography walk through a garden to practice your new skills. Learn about easy ways to get better closeup photos with a macro lens. The lecture portion will cover macro photography composition, gear options, easy-to-learn tips on finding interesting subjects and wildlife, and simple post-processing.

Then you’ll head out to the gardens to practice, where you’ll have an opportunity to test SIGMA loaner gear and watch Heather as she shares how to find critters or interesting flowers.

This class will cover things like shutter speed and aperture for close-up photos, plus macro photography composition, subject framing, and techniques for getting good focus. Heather will be teaching her methods on how to SLOW DOWN and see the world so many people miss. *Please be advised that while we strive to ensure easy access for all, due to the naturally varied topography, portions of any walk may be inaccessible to those with mobility concerns.

You’ll have an opportunity to test SIGMA loaner gear.  Heather recommends all macro lenses Sigma makes including the 70mm macro for E or I mount and the new and older versions of 105mm macro for E or I mount and the 105mm

This class is limited to 20 attendees.
