About the Programme

While nothing is as beautiful as experiencing nature with your own eyes, macro photography can bring nature’s details and intricacies to the forefront and heighten your appreciation. If you are a gardener, a nature lover or a budding photographer, join us to explore this world of macro photography together! We will share some of the camera gears and techniques that you can use to capture these macro subjects.

This programme is specially organised in conjunction with the re-opening of Choa Chu Kang Public Library.

Did you know that the newly revamped Choa Chu Kang Public Library is NLB's first nature-themed library with an indoor garden? To get more updates about this new library, visit our Public Libraries Singapore Facebook page at!
