Most of my workshops are broadly designed for teaching macro photography. Thus, I am pleased to announce a fun and rather more specialized course, a day-long session on photographing honey bees:

Honey Bee Photography

Long Lane Honey Bee Farms
Fairmount, Illinois

The course is intended for beekeepers and bee enthusiasts with minimal photography experience. Course topics will include:

  • Magnification
  • Lighting
  • Composition
  • Photographing bees in the hive
  • Photographing bees in the field
  • Telling a story in pictures

Required equipment: (minimum) any camera, SLR or digicam, with a macro function; (recommended) camera with off-camera flash and macro near 1:1.

This workshop is the final day of a week long Beekeeping Institute taught by master beekeeper David Burns. People travel to David’s classes from all over the country. If you are thinking of keeping bees as a hobby, consider signing up for the full week. Otherwise you may elect to take just the photography bit.
