The Unseen World: Introduction into Macro Photography




Discover the world around us that is typically unseen to the human eye!  Join Nick Sinnott to learn Macro Photography, a new 7-Week Class, offered both Online and In-Studio.  During this class, you will be photographing the Macro details of flowers, crystals, ice, water drops, insects, plus more.  In-Studio Classes are limited to 10 students and all CDC & Local Guidelines will be followed.

Class Requirements (General)

  • Completed Photo II or request permission here: [email protected]
  • DSLR or Mirrorless Camera
