Macro photography in the South Holland dunes
For this exclusive macro photography photo workshop we go to 1 of my favorite coastal areas; Meijendel. Part of the largest continuous dune area in South Holland and designated as a Natura 2000 area. Meijendel has its charms during every season, so we could actually go here all year round. But for macro photography, mid-May to the end of October is actually the best time. But not only nature on the square centimeter is interesting. Special birds in the area include the black-eared grebe, bluethroat, bittern and little bittern. Meijendel is also very rich in game; roe deer, foxes and some fallow deer live there. The workshop is suitable for photographers of all levels and, in addition to the technical side of macro photography, we will also discuss the art of looking. The composition and your point of view in relation to your subject is often the basis for a less or more successful photo.
To have the best chance in the morning of insects that are still warming up and therefore more approachable for us, we start early….
Experience shows that this often pays off in the best photo opportunities!
