Date & Time: Friday, March 6, 2020 | 5:00pm-7:00pm & 7:00pm-9:00pm

Tired of carrying around your tripod for macro photography?  Many flower shows and arboretums don’t allow the use of a tripod as well.  Roman will guide you through the steps of creating tack sharp macro images without using a tripod!  The secret to his success is effectively using flash as well as other light sources.  During this two-hour hands-on shoot Roman will assist you with the proper settings to help you capture stunning images of your own using the multiple flower setups.  Bring your camera with fully charged battery, memory cards, and a flash (even the pop up works).  Leave the tripod at home! A basic knowledge of setting your ISO, f/stop, and where to change your shutter speed is required.

Sigma tech rep Karen Hart will also be there with Sigma macro gear for you to try out for most Canon, Nikon, and Sony camera bodies.

About Roman

Roman Kurywczak is a professional nature photographer for over 15 years who conducts lectures and workshops across the globe. His boutique tour company, Roamin’ with Roman Photo Tours, caters to small groups (only 4) to provide the ultimate learning experience for participants. Whether he is out in Tanzania or standing before a roaring waterfall in Iceland, Roman’s energy and passion for nature photography are clearly evident.  You can often find him out in Arches or Yellowstone national park late at night photographing the nighttime landscapes and calling it fun! Closer to home, Roman will spend countless hours doing macro photography.  While he enjoys photographing insects, his favorite subject is flowers, which he buys for his wife and he is sticking to that story. Roman is equally comfortable photographing landscapes, macro subjects, and wildlife whether he is at some exotic location or close to home.

His down to earth and easy to follow teaching style make him a highly sought after lecturer.  He has given countless lectures and workshops across the country.  The author of several instructional eBooks on nature photography, Roman strives to share his passion for photography as others have shared with him. He lives in NJ and has been married for 30 years and has two sons.
