I have always loved flowers and insects and other small things when it comes to photography.  With that said my attempts at macro photography were always a bit of a failure.  I just could not grasp how to work with such shallow depths of field and the “tricks” used to make perfect lighting in such a small space.  So I ended up taking a Macro Photography workshop at the Colorado Photography Festival.  Gene was the instructor for the workshop and I just loved it.  He explained things in a way that was very different from all the training videos and tutorials I had watched.  It really helped to gel the information for me.  He even extended the workshop for an extra hour free, just because everyone in the class was having so much fun capturing wildflowers.  I’ll be back for more classes in the future.
