The Art of Macro Photography

with Tiffany Kelly


$300 Full Participation | $150 Study Along

Learn everything you ever wanted to know about macro photography!

Macro photography makes for a therapeutic personal shooting project or a wonderful way to capture details for newborn and wedding clients. Learn how to slow down and take gorgeous macro photographs in this 4 week workshop.

Students will learn how to develop their own vision for macro photography, and how to incorporate different types of light and composition into their macro work. We will cover the technical details and basics of creating stunning macro photographs before moving into more advanced and creative applications. We will explore how to complete our vision with post-processing. This workshop will leave you feeling inspired by all the beauty you find in the details.


Students should be comfortable shooting in manual mode. Students should have gear that allows them to shoot macro photography (a macro lens, Lensbaby with macro capability, filters, or extension tubes). Tiffany is happy to make a recommendation based on your budget.

  • Sandra Ruth says:

    This class was exactly what I needed. I was in a rut and needed a creative challenge. Macro is so much fun and it helps you to slow down and see all the beauty around you. Tiffany is an amazing instructor! So professional, helpful and inspiring. Her material covered everything you need in order to learn how to master macro photography.
    Thank you so much for everything, Tiffany! Your class was definitely one of my highlights of this summer!

  • DanaN says:

    I was hesitant to take this class since most of the photos shown were of flowers and I was interested in capturing wedding and party details. But Tiffany assured me that her class wasn’t just for flowers. She recommended a lens that was perfect for what I wanted to capture. She had great tips and tricks and even a few different techniques to try. So if you’re interested in any type of macro photography, this is a wonderful class!

  • Molly says:

    This is one of the best courses I have ever taken on CM. Tiffany gives so many great tips and insights into shooting macro photography. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking to broaden their artistic skills and vision.

  • Marcella says:

    I loved this class! I had not shot macro before this class and I have learned so much from Tiffany. The shooting videos were very helpful and the feedback on the weekly assignments was so valuable. Highly recommended!

  • Sonya Fuller says:

    This was an awesome class! The tips that Tiffany gave helped me to improve my macro photography and she was very responsive to any question that was asked. I would highly recommend this class.

  • Alexa says:

    I have wanted to shoot macro ever since I learned how to use my DSLR. I thought it wasn’t possible without a true macro lens and knew one was not in my budget. After speaking with Tiffany before registering I learned about extension tubes and realized there were affordable options for me at this time. I was beyond thrilled to be able to FINALLY take Tiffany’s class. I was nervous coming into the class having never shot a single macro image but I have to say that I LOVED every single week of our class.

    Tiffany’s organization of the class was easy to follow – from easy to understand PDF’s to multiple videos each week as well as live Q&A’s and personalized video critique feedback for full participation students. Remember I knew absolutely nothing about macro photography other than the fact that I have always loved very detailed images. As a bonus I felt like the students were super supportive and encouraging in addition to Tiffany and the TA.

    If you have even thought about taking a macro class I cannot possibly recommend it enough! Please do not let fear of trying something new or not having the most expensive lens stop you. You will be amazed at the images you can create as a result of Tiffany’s The Art of Macro class. Tiffany is an absolutely amazing instructor and so encouraging. I think everyone could learn from Tiffany’s class no matter if you have been shooting macro for years or are just beginning.

    Please do yourself a favor and register for Tiffany’s class. I promise you will not regret it. Many, many heartfelt thanks for an incredible class Tiffany!!

  • Laura Langlois Zurro says:

    I can’t say enough good things about Tiffany and The Art of Macro class. If you are looking to delve deeper into a new genre or have always wondered about macro, then this is the class for you. I was so excited to buy my first macro lens a few months back and had been getting the hang of it, but I was looking for a deeper understanding of macro and how to bring more artistry into my macro images and Tiffany’s class gave me all that and so much more! She provides great materials to learn from as well as a positive and supportive environment that allows the student to learn and grow. The video critiques were really helpful and watching the video and being able to hear her voice while she walked through the strengths and weaknesses in my images, as well as suggestions to think about, was incredibly helpful. I really appreciate that the class provided a safe and supportive place for me to reach outside my comfort zone. Finally, being able to connect with other macro lovers was the cherry on the top. Thank you so much Tiffany!

  • Liz Morris says:

    I really enjoyed this workshop and would like to thank Tiffany and her helpers for all the help and encouragement given to me. I found it extremely helpful in all of the areas covered. There was lots of guidance and help available which I appreciated. The PDFs and videos that were supplied each week were very good, helpful and presented professionally. There was an assignment set each week and a video critique from Tiffany was made available which I found very helpful. I had never used manual focus and that was the first weekly lesson. Second week was all about composition and use of colour in Macro. Also the many genres of Macro. Week three was about lighting and its creative application in Macro. Fourth week was about editing. Every week there were different Alumni Helpers, who gave advice, Helped and answered questions. All of these ladies were very responsive to questions and were very helpful.. I had a fantastic time and my mind is still boggling with all the information that I will be going over and over for some time to come.

  • Robin Askelson says:

    I truly loved this class. I have been shooting or trying to shoot macro for a year or so and I was stuck. I think this class is what I needed to see new possibilities and learn what I needed to do, to go to a new level. I took the Study Along and I would definitely recommend it. Tiffany gives you quite a bit of material to read and watch. I will be re-reading and re-watching these materials for a while.

  • Velina Maqueira says:

    There are not enough wonderful things to say about this workshop! Tiffany is one of the most patient, giving and committed instructors. She shares her talent and knowledge so freely and is dedicated to see her participants grow as artists. I have been shooting (what I thought was) Macro for about 2 years. It was my first true love in my photography journey. In these few short weeks I learned more and grew more than I ever did through my own attempts over the last 2 years. There is just no value to put on the critique, feedback, support and encouragement you will find in this workshop. Not only from Tiffany, but also from a group that loves and values the Art of Macro photography. You absolutely will not regret one penny or second you spend investing in this workshop. Tiffany and it’s content are truly priceless!

  • Laura Turner says:

    I really loved this class! I’ve always been interested in macro and I recently purchased a macro lens, but I didn’t really know how to use it correctly and actually thought it wasn’t working, until I took this class (turns out it was me, not the lens!). After week 1 I was off and running with my macro obsession! Tiffany provided so much interesting information and useful videos that I will be reviewing even after the class ends. Her feedback on assignments was really helpful as well. After taking many classes related to photographing people, I learned so much in this class about color, lighting and composition for macro images that I wouldn’t have thought of on my own. Macro photography gives me a new artistic outlet (and flowers are much more cooperative subjects than my children!) and I’m excited to keep pursuing it and creating macro art.

  • Jenny Waller says:

    The Art of Photography is a must take class! Tiffany so freely shares her skill and tips with you. I have been shooting macro for years but never really new true macro until this workshop. It is a class for beginners and for advanced.

  • I love macro photography, and Tiffany taught me how to take it to some wonderful new places. This class covers so many techniques in both shooting and post-processing. I know I’ll be going back to her materials time and again. I took it in January so I was mostly shooting indoors; I can’t wait to get outside this spring and summer and put what I learned into practice with a whole new range of subject matter! And there are so many different ways to shoot macro with the subjects and the equipment you have at hand or with some minor additions – you don’t need an expensive macro lens or a willing human subject.

  • Susanne says:

    I so enjoyed The Art of Macro. I began the workshop without having ever taken a true macro photo and I learned so much, from what gear to use to a great understanding of depth of field, lighting, composition and subject matter. Tiffany encourages her students at all levels – those brand new to macro, photographers branching out to a new style and seasoned macro photographers who want to improve their images. It’s a great class to slow down, focus on the details and look for interest and beauty all around us. Tiffany’s teaching style is supportive, encouraging, responsive and helpful, with a wonderful balance of attention to the technical and style/art of photography. She also creates a supportive community for her students to share their work and comment on other’s images. I highly recommend the workshop.

  • Humera Aaqib says:

    I will highly recommend this workshop to anyone starting out macro, I bought a dedicated macro lens and ended up hating photography, stumbler upon this workshop , did a study along only and noticed huge improvements in my work xx best investment ever

  • Tina Rewkowski says:

    I’m not a huge macro photography person….but when I saw the information for Tiffany’s class, as well as her work, it sparked something that made me want to challenge myself in this style of photography. I was going through a bit of a creative rut before taking it, so this really helped to spark me right out of it. Her class was extremely thorough, very full of information, and tons of videos. I really love her use of textures and her dark and moody style, that seems to match my own in documentary photography. I took this is a study-along student and knew what was included and what wasn’t, so I really actually liked being able to set my own pace, especially with it being right after the holidays. Unfortunately I didn’t have a macro lens though and only used extension tubes on my 50mm. I wouldn’t recommend going into this course like that, you really will get so much more out of it if you have a macro lens. I felt very limited in what I could do with just the tubes. It can still be done and you still get amazing results, but it could just be soooo much more. So consider renting a macro lens if you don’t have one, or purchasing one prior to the class. There is a definite learning curve! Overall I feel like I’m walking away starting to notice the details more and being able to offer more variety in my photography. Tiffany is a fantastic teacher and the sweetest thing ever! She goes above and beyond in her courses, you won’t be disappointed!

  • Run, don’t walk to sign up for this class! Well, maybe type fast! I took this class last summer and just had the privilege of being an alumni helper for the last session! I can’t begin to tell you all that you will get out of this class. Tiffany’s pdf’s and video walk you through all of it! It doesn’t matter how you learn, with several methods you’ll see it, hear it, and read about it. All that’s left is for you to do it! If you’re fortunate enough to get a full participation spot you’ll get support throughout the week as you practice and some very insightful comments from Tiffany when you post your assignment. I thought I knew a lot about macro photography going into it, but Tiffany opened my eyes to new techniques and improved my mechanics in others! Seriously, this is the best money I’ve spent in a long time! Just do it! You won’t regret it!

  • Kelly Cormier says:

    Don’t say the reviews didn’t warn you… this class is life changing! You will see things in new ways, and learn to find such amazing calm in photographing the little details. Tiffany is a wonderful teacher. The work was extremely well prepared and cohesive, and the feedback invaluable. This was my first full participation class and I’m SO glad it was. For me, who struggles to be inspired during dreary, long winters, macro has become my year round escape. If you’re on the fence….don’t be! This class should be on everyones short list of workshops!

  • Erika Mobley says:

    I was part of the inaugural run on the Art of Macro workshop by Tiffany Kelly. This was my first workshop with ClickinMoms. I took full participation and am so glad I did. Tiffany’s feedback on assignments is amazing. The whole class is amazing. I have always loved macro (since as far back as my film days) but could never quite get a handle on it. Tiffany’s shooting style and teaching style is so open and encouraging. She is very active on workshop forum and so fun. She provides so much information and feedback. This workshop gets 100 stars out of 10! :). Thanks, Tiffany, for sharing your heart and knowledge in this workshop. It will forever be a favorite and one I return to often when I get stuck in a rut.

  • Kelsey says:

    This was my first Click Photo School full participation class and I loved it! I was nervous at first but Tiffany was such a great instructor and the material was easy to follow but full of great information. I’ve been a photographer for a long time and learned so much from this class. I’m so glad I took the step to finally take a CM class…worth every penny!

  • Kim says:

    Tiffany offers a wonderfully prepared workshop. Covering everything from introduction to macro to editing a final product, the materials and resources in this workshop are incredibly helpful. It is obvious that Tiffany is fully invested in the workshop as an instructor.
    Despite getting a late start as a Study Along participant, access to view the forum and critiques, allowed this class to be an exceptional learning experience.

  • Tracy Reid says:

    This workshop was fantastic! I have always loved macro photography but really wanted to take my shooting to the next level. Tiffany provided great tutorials and instructions to make it easy to understand. My photos have been transformed and I get so many comments now. I am so happy to have taken this course! I highly recommend.

  • Julie Pease says:

    What an amazing workshop! I fell in love with macro in last spring, but didn’t really know where to start and all the ins and outs of it. There was so much wonderful information provided in these past 4 weeks. From gear to settings, all the way to creative editing. Not only was I inspired by Tiffany and her knowledge and talent, but also by all the art created by the other wonderful members of this course. The timing could not have been better for me. Macro has been so good to beat the winter blues!

  • This was an awesome class. I could never figure out how to give my macro images the edge to make them really good. This class was full of little titbits that have made the world of difference. I enjoyed the class immensely and learned a lot!

  • Kari Berglund says:

    This class was so helpful in moving my macro photography to a new level. I was only a study along participant, but I learned so much from Tiffany’s videos. One of the biggest helps to me was really learning how my macro lense works and how differently aperture works for DOF in macro shots. I enjoyed the feedback of my fellow SA students and I think we helped each other learn even more. I can’t wait to keep practicing!

  • Megan Arndt says:

    I cannot recommend this workshop highly enough! Tiffany is a wonderful teacher, and is extremely involved in the classroom forum. We got such great daily feedback, and the detailed video critiques every week were so awesome. I feel like I grew leaps and bounds during the course of this workshop, and I was really able practice and become comfortable with some fairly intimidating skills. Don’t be intimidated, though: Tiffany breaks it down so that by the end of the 4 weeks, you’ll feel totally comfortable shooting this genre. If you’ve ever been curious about macro photography, run to take this class! You definitely won’t regret it!

  • Judy Peterson says:

    Tiffany has opened up a whole new world of photography for me! Macro photography has changed how I view the world around me. I find myself noticing small details that I’ve never noticed before, and appreciating the beauty in life that is everywhere. This was such an amazing course. Tiffany’s PDFs and video demonstrations were very thorough and full of wonderful information, and she was very attentive and available throughout the entire four weeks. I am so thankful to have taken this course and appreciate all of the work that Tiffany put into it so make it so wonderful.

  • Julie says:

    Tiffany’s class give me everything and more than I could have hoped for in Macro Photography. I learned how to see and use light in a whole new way, how to create cool effects sooc, how to shoot any time of day, and beautiful show stopping editing techniques to really bring out the details and showcase my photos to be their best. I highly recommend this class to everyone.

  • Tracy says:

    I have always loved macro, but struggled to get the results I was seeing in my head, this course has helped me so much, its been great, the materials are very user friendly. Tiffany is very helpful, questions are answered, and her feedback on images is so beneficial. this is a great course

  • Donna Stevens says:

    I absolutely LOVED Tiffany Kelly’s Macro Photography class. Tiffany is just an amazing and generous instructor. I can’t remember another class that got me SO excited about taking out my camera! She really poured her heart into this class, and it shows! The materials, videos, and inspiration were plentiful, and Tiffany’s video critiques struck that perfect balance of encouragement and insightful feedback to take our work to the next level. Tiffany’s passion was completely contagious, and she was always present on the forums to answer a question or share a giggle. I’m SO sad this class has come to an end!! If you are on the fence, do yourself a favor and REGISTER for this one. It’s one of the best and most fulfilling photo classes I’ve taken…maybe ever!

  • Sylwia Roukens says:

    I absolutely loved this class! Tiffany has her own approach to macro photography and if you think it is going to be all about tripod and stopping down your camera – you are in for a surprise. I didn’t know much about macro when started and fell in love with it instantly. I am amazed by Tiffany’s talent and instructional qualities. Great hands-on video tutorials, daily feedback provided and a lot of inspiration from the materials. Starting with focusing and technical information, through different light and creative macro ideas to LR and PS edits – this class was worth it!!

  • Eileen says:

    I absolutely loved this class. I have long been interested in macro photography and really wanted to take my macro work to the next level. This workshop allowed me to do that. Tiffany is an amazing teacher. Not only is her work extremely inspiring, she is very present and generous during class. Her critiques are thorough and helpful. This class helped me rediscover my love for photography! Thanks, Tiffany!

  • Deb Garman says:

    This is beyond a doubt one of the best classes that I’ve taken. Tiffany has the class so well organized and is so responsive to questions and practice posts. I feel like I’m a much better photographer overall from this class, not just in macro work. In addition to a great TA and AH army, she provides feedback to practice throughout the week, not just the weekly assignments which is so helpful to making progress. It’s also a fun subject matter and I enjoyed looking for tiny things to document in addition to flowers. There is a reason that this class is so popular with so many rave reviews.

  • Linda LM says:

    Just when I thought I was mastering macro photography, I took Tiffany’s Art of Macro Photography class and realized, there was sooooooo much more to learn. Tiffany is a patient instructor and very thoughtful in her critiques. This class helped me push my creative side in directions that I didn’t know existed until Tiffany encouraged us and provided us with some valuable tools. Would love to see an Advanced Art of Macro Photography class by Tiffany. I would sign up in a heartbeat. Thank you, Tiffany!

  • Jennifer Weston says:

    This is such an eye opening class! There is so much information packed into this class and the interaction is fantastic. Tiffany does a wonderful job presenting macro in a clear and understandable way and is there for you with any questions you may have and will work through any issues you are having until it clicks for you. It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, summer, winter or anywhere in between, you will not have issues taking beautiful macro images. I highly recommend this class to anyone who is interested in learning macro or to anyone who needs a new creative outlet with their photography.

  • Gail Barnes says:

    This class was an exceptional learning experience. I learned techniques that have allowed me to capture many unique details. This course was definitely worth my investment.

  • Jen Paskey says:

    I loved this class. Tiffany does such a great job presenting the ideas in her videos and PDFs. I really got a better understanding of macro. The best thing for me was working with non-human subjects that could be photographed anytime of day. She gave me the tools I needed and it was so freeing to just take shots and change the whole look by changing an angle slightly or the lighting. I highly recommend this class!!!

  • Jamie Fulenwider says:

    When I took this class I knew very little about macro. Four weeks with Tiffany and I have never felt more confident about being able to execute my vision where macro photography is concerned. Tiffany’s class material is clear and concise and her feedback is so very valuable. The techniques Tiffany teaches in Art of Macro are transferrable to other genres. You will soon find yourself taking photos that make you swoon not only of macro subjects but across all of your favorite areas of photography. This course was really a game changer for me. Art of Macro has opened my eyes to the intricate details of the people and things in my world. I am sure it will do the same for you so sign up for this class as soon as you can!

  • Lorraine Balon says:

    If you are interested in (or even curious about) macro photography this class is a must!

    I had very little knowledge of macro photography prior to this class and in 4 weeks I have seen a tremendous improvement in my macro images. The critical elements to capture beautiful macro photos (lighting, depth of field, focus, composition) are the same components we use in all our photography genres expect with macro photography it is on a smaller and precise scale. After completing this class I not only know how to take macro photos; but, I am a more confident photographer.

    Tiffany devoted a tremendous amount of time and interest to support the class activities and student’s needs. The weekly course material (PDFs and videos), assignments, knowledgeable Alumni Helpers (AH) made learning fun and rewarding.

    The video taped weekly critiques created by Tiffany, on your assignments, were fantastic! This is where the real learning occurred! Her comments and suggestions were positive and made it easy to grow and improve your photography from week to week. Being able to watch fellow classmate critiques provided even more learnings.

    This class has left me confident to include macro photography in my photography repertoire. And, macro photography sure does make a nice addition to one’s Instagram account.

  • Sara says:

    Tiffany is an amazing teacher. She provides you with so much content that is thoughtfully laid out for you, it is amazing. You get videos of how she does things, a detailed pdf with so information and things to help push your macro photography, plus her weekly video review of your images are so helpful. Just having her talk you through her thoughts on our image is so helpful to see things in a different way. She is an open book and always available to help you work through problems. I have taken other classes that didn’t even coming close to comparing to this one. If you want to push out of a rut and try something new, this is the class for you. Plus macro photography helps you see the world differently and elevates all your photography, creativity and attention to detail. I would suggest the full participation if possible. Having people comment on your work is so a great way to grow your photography skills and notice the little things that take your image from average to something special.

  • Susan says:

    This was my favorite workshop I have ever taken w/ Clickin Moms! Not only is Tiffany a complete doll and joy to learn from, the information she shares is absolutely spectacular. She is very thorough w/ her feedback on the homework, which is extremely helpful. The way she writes the lessons each week is very easy to understand and implement. Even though I use a very short lens (Nikon 45mm macro), Tiffany has helped me utilize this lens very well. I am so pleased w/ what I can capture. I highly recommend this workshop if you want to improve your macro photography. :)

  • Michelle Wright says:

    If you’re undecided – go for it!

    I was delighted to be part of this course. There is an amazing amount of material and Tiffany explains just everything you need to know or anything you ask her. I really felt like my photography has grown – in an artful and thoughtful way. My use of colour, light, composition – all have improved thanks to Tiffany. It’s so exciting to see the endless opportunities when you have been shown ‘the way’.

    I would actually love to do a part two – Tiffany – do we have a second course I can sign up for??!

  • Jessa Kandybe says:

    I know this is a little late, but I wanted to take some time to review this workshop with Tiffany Kelly @tkelly912. I enjoyed this workshop so much. I found that macro is a genre of photography that I really enjoy and the weather dose not have to cooperate! Prior to this class I did not have any macro experience at all. Now I feel confident to explore this art. Thank Tiffany for all the great materials and guidance.

  • Donna Deneé says:

    I love macro and I’ve been shooting macro for quite some time. But I realized that my results weren’t as consistent as I’d like them to be. Specifically, I struggled with composition and deciding where the focal point really should be. So I signed up for this class and I think it was one of the best things I could have done! Tiffany is a very involved instructor and she makes herself very available to critique, to answer questions and to share her own images. She shot (and shared) along side us the entire workshop. I took the class FP and found myself in the midst of the most incredible classmates. They were extremely involved – shooting, posting, commenting – and it was far more than I could have ever expected. I leave this class with a very solid foundation for shooting macro – understanding the ratios, the equipment and options that are available to me, a wealth of techniques in shooting, lighting and editing, and a whole bunch of supportive new found CM friends! This was an amazing experience.

  • Debbie Gottdenker says:

    This workshop was fantastic! Tiffany has put together amazing materials and a flow which logically builds upon skills. Her participation in the workshop was amazing with so much valuable feedback. While I was sorry to see it come to an end, I now have a treasure-trove of materials to go back to as I go further along my macro journey.

    Here’s a link to some images I shot during and after the workshop:

  • Laura Zachry says:

    I absolutely loved this class and am sad it’s over!! I learned so much – Tiffany is a great photographer and instructor. I highly recommend it!!!

  • Melissa McCann says:

    For anyone interested in learning Macro photography – look no further. I bought a macro lens a few months ago and had been taking some photos on my own. I could not understand why they looked so unimpressive. Well Macro is a true art and a very different genre from portraits. I learned so much from Tiffany. The materials are excellent and her critiques are wonderful. She provided video critiques and they were very thorough. The daily forum for the class was super active and I took hundreds of images over the four weeks. I still need a lot of practice but the difference between what I was shooting before this class and now is astounding. I highly recommend this class.

  • I knew I would enjoy this class because I love details, but I had no idea how much I would LOVE this class! Tiffany provided great pdf’s, detailed videos, creative ideas, and helpful feedback which made this class a great learning experience for me. I can honestly say that macro has become one of my favorite things to shoot. I can’t recommend this class enough!

  • Lacey says:

    Such an amazing class! Tiffany provides beautiful materials and is available on a daily basis to answer questions and provide insight and encouragement. The video critiques of each assignment were posted quickly and Tiffany took her time to go through the images and explain her thought process. I found this extremely helpful when critiquing my own work prior to submitting each assignment. This class has definitely opened my eyes to new creative possibilities and sparked a newfound love for macro.

  • Rachael says:

    I just finished taking @tkelly912 class “The Art of Macro Photography”. This was my first class and I have LOVED it! I got my macro lens a few days before class started and thought I should be able to start taking macro pictures right away. I was in for a surprise! They looked pretty awful. I got discouraged wondering if this just wasn’t the genre for me but then I started class and within a week I saw HUGE improvements in my macro shots!! Macro photography has become more therapeutic for me than frustrating and all thanks to this class.

  • Erica says:

    I had no idea how much went in to creating beautiful macro images. I love flowers as much as the next woman but Tiffany’s techniques work for any subject. I used much of what I learned in her workshop to create more compelling documentary images too. I’m re-inspired every time I look at her material!

  • Lori says:

    This course was my first full participation CM course, and first significant engagement with macro photography. It was a fantastic experience where I saw my comfort and application improve each week. I look forward to continued growth in applying the techniques and feedback that I received throughout the course from Tiffany, the TA’s, and my classmates. Each week’s material provided many wonderful visual examples and richly detailed content, building off of the previous week. Daily practice and shares were highly encouraged and helpful in motivation and improvement. Weekly assignment critiques played another pivotal resource through Tiffany’s video critiques and additionally complemented by detailed TA feedback. Tiffany is an amazing instructor; hands on, quick to respond with assistance and information, check-ins, and encouraging off-topic chatter to foster a supportive and engaging community. I rarely used my macro lens before this, and I’m eager and excited to continue practicing. It’s highly addicting! So many great treasures throughout this course that enhance your creativity and learning, and items that I would have not considered for macro, but I look at in a whole new way. 100% recommend!

    This was my first experience with a full participation class and it was amazing! I knew very little about macro photography when I started the class ( other than a couple YouTube videos) and I feel like I have uncovered a love that I didn’t even know was there. I am still shooting macro every single day! Tiffany was a great instructor. She was active in the forum, always answered your questions right away and gave great weekly video CC of the images that were submitted. I got so much from watching not only my weekly videos but the videos of the other students as well. This was a very supportive and encouraging environment from Tiffany, the TA’s and the exceptional students! The materials were great and I will be referring back to them often as I continue my journey. If you get the chance to take this class, do it!

    The Art of Macro is a wonderful workshop for anyone who wants to learn this beautiful genre of photography or sharpen their macro skills. It really covers everything from how to shoot, using artful compositions and light, to editing. Tiffany Kelly is so knowledgeable and helpful – she pushes her students to help grow their skills. I encourage anyone thinking about this workshop to dive right in – you’ll soon catch the macro bug like we have! You won’t be disappointed.

    The Art of Macro has been a fabulous class. The materials were very informative with beautiful pictures and examples. The critiques were thoughtful and Tiffany was very active in giving feedback and answering questions throughout the weeks. Thanks to this class, I have been bitten by the macro bug!

  • I loved this course and truly wish it had been 6 months instead of the 4 week it actually was! I am still picking up my camera on a daily basis to practice. I feel that what I learned from Tiffany in this class applies to so much more than just Macro Photography, and I think it was her style of teaching that speaks to me as well as the subject. I really liked that when she critiqued my submissions each week, she did it via video, so I could hear her voice. I think sometimes tone can get lost in those critiques and each of us can take things so personally, and all of the CM teachers are so great, but I know I have gone back to re-read critiques and thought, “wow, she didn’t mean it the way I read it the first time”… with the video critiques, you can actually hear the tone and enthusiasm in Tiffany’s voice and her suggestions followed me lesson to lesson. That is how I learn best, and that may not suit all, but it has definitely stuck with me and made me pick up my camera more and more. I really liked that she made macro available to not just flowers, but to others genres of photography as well, newborns, children, food, etc. This is a wonderful course, and if you get a chance to take it, just do it!

  • The Art of Macro is a beautifully prepared workshop. Covering everything from introduction to macro to editing your macro photographs, the materials and resources in this workshop are wonderfully helpful. Tiffany is fully invested in the workshop, offering detailed feedback and thoughtful critique.

    I highly recommend this class! I took it looking for a creative outlet and got SO much more out of it than I’d even hoped. The materials are well thought out, in depth and full of ideas to use macro photography in many ways. It’s opened up a whole new world of photographic possibilities and I can apply what I’ve learned to other areas of photography, too.

    The materials are very well done and the assignments are well thought out. Tiffany is not only a great macro photographer, she’s a great teacher. She’s very active on the forum. One of the best parts of the class was her video critiques of weekly assignments. I learned so much from her editing suggestions. (My only regret is taking it as a study-along rather than full participation, because of missing out on the critiques). I’m officially a macro photography addict now, but it’s a good addiction, because we’ve decided that macro photography is therapeutic!

    I absolutely love this class and am so sad it is coming to an end. I have learned so much from Tiffany. She gives so much valuable information and I love her video lessons. Oh, and the video critiquing! I am a visual person, and it was great to be able to see what I needed to change or where I needed to improve.
    I love that Tiffany gets involved with daily discussion. She is always there to answer questions. I have met some really awesome people in this class too.
    This class is so worth it!!

    This class is amazing! The material Tiffany provides has so much information and ideas to photograph in macro. The possibilities are endless. Tiffany’s involvement throughout the class is marvelous. She is always present to answer any questions you might have. If Tiffany does not know the answer to your question, she will do the research to get the answer.

    My macro lens collected dust for almost 2 years and I was ready to trade it in for something different. I honestly thought that there was something wrong with my lens. Come to find out that it was operator error. Tiffany’s class has not only taught me to shoot macro, but also has opened up the more creative side of me. There are so many images in my head that scream to come out on canvas.

    If you are wanting to learn macro photography and put some creativity into your photography, this class is a must. You will not regret taking this class. The class is worth every penny and than some.
