February Meeting with guest speaker Steve Labkoff
Join us on February 17 at 6:30 p.m. for a Zoom meeting with guest speaker, Steve Labkoff discussing Macro Photography.
Social Hour 6:30 p.m.
Program 7:00 p.m.
Abstract: Macro photography provides a new world of imaging – with things that are typically right under your nose. This talk will go over introductory and intermediate concepts on how to get started, what tools are needed, and figuring out strategies to get best results – focus stacking vs single shots. We will go over tools, techniques and work flows in processing macro photographs. We will talk about issues involved in planning and execution in macrophotography. Example image will be presented – with explanations on how these images were made.
Dr. Steven Labkoff is an award-winning photographer based in Stamford, Connecticut. Since the age of 9, Dr. Labkoff captures life as it happens through his lens.

He is internationally recognized, having exhibitions on 3 continents from Europe, to Israel and across the US. His numerous photography awards include national and regional awards in New York and New England.
