Thank you Neville Foster

Last week, Neville Foster gave a very interesting practical presentation on Macro Photography.  He set up his camera gear and brought along flowers of various shapes and sizes, as well as (shock horror, fake) dragonflies and butterflies to demonstrate the best angles to capture the perfect macro.  He even demonstrated taking a portrait shot using his 180mm macro lens.

Neville shared a lot of tips and tricks and we did find out that F18 was his favourite aperture setting!

 

Thank you Neville.
