“From Macro to Micro” is an experiential photography course for dentists and dental technicians, the goal is that the participant understands:
- How the modification and direction of light can vary the registration of the hard and soft tissues
- Select and adapt inexpensive photographic equipment to produce images in high definition with a deep morphological detail
- Capture the human face, smile and lips in studio-quality mode
- Photograph the optical effects and micro-texture of hard & soft tissue in macro and micro magnification
- Show and value prosthetic elements using product-photography techniques
The course is intended for all levels from the basic to the advanced. Also From macro to micro has been developed more than 90 times in 22 countries in America, Europe, Eurasia and Asia. Participants who have taken this course are involved in educational projects and use photography as a tool for communication.
