Learn about macro photography with a FUJIFILM Product Specialist in our workshop tailored to photography beginners and enthusiasts.
Before we share the details of our Introduction to Macro Photography workshop, let’s get to know the FUJIFILM Product Specialist who will be accompanying you.
Carl Hare pairs creative experience with technical know-how as a freelance photographer and FUJIFILM UK product specialist. His photography spans many genres, and while his professional roots trace back to weddings, Carl is equally adept at studio portraiture, street, macro, landscapes and wildlife.
Keen to share his wealth of knowledge, Carl has delivered photography workshops for close to a decade. His passion for the outdoors is a constant source of inspiration, and when he can combine it with his teaching skills, there’s simply nothing better – for him and his students.

Date: 14th September 2024
Meeting Point: Reception Desk, FUJIFILM House of Photography, 8-9 Long Acre, Covent Garden, London, WC2E 9LH
This workshop is aimed at aspiring macro photographers of a beginner or intermediate level. While comprehensive training and guidance will be provided on the day, it would be useful if all attendees had a basic understanding of the exposure triangle – aperture, shutter speeds and ISO.
The first part of the day is classroom-based learning, with Carl taking you through photography and macro fundamentals.
14:00 - 14:30
14:30 - 17:30
The remainder of the afternoon will be spent putting the learning into action with a practical session. Expect lots of hands-on and image-making opportunities.
The day will provide a comprehensive grounding in macro photography. Carl will cover a wide range of techniques and ideas, starting with a recap of basic exposure settings, before diving into specifics including macro vs close-up, fundamental equipment needs, magnification ratios, lighting and flash.
For the practical part of the workshop you will receive picture-taking advice, including which camera settings to use, tips for accurate focusing, depth-of-field control, compositional guidance, and how to keep backgrounds clean and uncluttered will also be discussed.
You’re welcome to bring your own set-up, although a selection of the latest FUJIFILM cameras and lenses suitable for this type of photography will be available on the day. We’d suggest the XF30mm F2.8 R LM WR Macro, 60mmF2.4 R Macro, XF80mmF2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro lenses are ideal, but close-focusing optics and XF extension tubes are also suitable.
Tripods and lighting equipment will be provided for the practical session in the afternoon.
