Focusing on the Small Things in Life

It’s not always about the grand landscape or the largest bull moose. Sometimes, we
need to slow down and take a look at the beauty all around us in the details. With
this class, we will explore the world at our feet, focusing on macro photography.
Participants will learn about how to find scenes and subjects, composing images,
special lighting considerations, creative and technical setting selections, and basic
Lightroom post processing techniques for macro images.

Alyce Bender is a nature photographer, writer, educator, and adventurer. Camera in
hand since childhood, her fascination for photography developed into a career after

compels her to connect others with nature through sharing both visual art and in-field
experiences that promote conservation, creativity, and ethical photography.

She is also a Tamron USA Ambassador, contributing writer for the Journal of Wildlife
Photography, and her work has been featured in group and solo gallery shows across the
US as well as in international publications from the UK to Japan. Bender leads
photography adventures around the world to help beginner through advanced
photographers explore and expand their personal vision and naturalist skills ethically.
When not in the field, she offers a variety of educational programs both in person and
virtually for photography organizations large and small.
