Classes & Workshops

intro to macro photography

Discover the ins and outs of macro and close-up digital photography with photographer Thomas Shahan. You’ll gain insights into composition, lighting, equipment (everything from cell phones to DSLR cameras), and how to work with tricky subjects. No experience required, and students in this class may be interested in the Advanced Macro Photography course offered later in spring 2019.

About the Instructor

Thomas Shahan is nationally renowned for his work in invertebrate photography. Following his undergraduate studies at the University of Oklahoma, he worked for the Oregon Department of Agriculture’s entomology lab as a digital imaging specialist, taking high-magnification, focus-stacked photographs and scanning electron microscope images of arthropods. His work has been published in the National Geographic magazine and various online outlets.
