You will need: Camera, macro lens + tripod. (Students can hire a macro lens from for a very reasonable price).

Your subject can be anything at all - small with detail is always good - leaves, ornaments, flowers etc. Texture always looks good in macro.

You will be emailing your images taken during the day to Nigel who will be critiquing them and giving helpful suggestions – please don’t be worried by this, it’s done in a friendly supportive manner.  It would be useful to have a pen and paper ready to enable you to take notes.
