Monica Royal’s obsession with macro started, like many others, with water on flowers and quickly grew to advanced abstract image design.  She especially enjoys photographing ordinary objects and making them completely unrecognizable.  “It makes for some really fun conversations!”

In this workshop we will play - a lot!  This is the very thing that is missing in the pursuit of breathtaking artwork.  I will be showing examples of what makes good macro images and then what it takes to make even better macro images! It’s the little things that matter.(pun intended). If you think you have a solid grasp of macro I guarantee that in this workshop you will still learn new things. 

 I’ll share all of my secrets for making those pesky little water drops hang off of flower petals and I’ll demonstrate why their placement in the composition is so critical. I’ll also explain how to photograph junk in such a way that you could sell it for thousands of dollars!
