Mike will be speaking to us about The Power of the Torch – where he will take us on an in depth look at alternative lighting methods for macro photography.
Images and discussion will be on the techniques associated with backlighting, sidelighting and 2-point lighting
with visual demonstrations for our members to actually see.
