Macro & Close-Up – Miniature People & Creative Photography – Llandudno Photographic Academy Evening

Creative, inspirational and fun – the genre of Miniature People photography is all of these things and more and is guaranteed have you making and creating some fantastic images at this Llandudno Photographic Academy Evening.   By integrating true scale objects, from food to every day items you can find around your home the idea is to build real scenes, that look almost realistic.  By using your imagination you will soon see the potential for creating and making photos in miniature is inexhaustible. Your weekly food shop, or a child’s toy box will become a world of inspiration and an adventure.  Ordinary household items and foods will now be a child’s playgrounds, or ramps and jumps for a miniature skatepark. The limit truly is your own imagination.  As well as making creative images at this Academy Evening for your portfolio you will learn the art of macro and close-up photography, how using your cameras setting and functions can give your images a different look and feel and learn how to light your composition using light-boxes and light pads.
