Photography for Fungi Fans

    27 Scotts Bay Road, Wallagoot NSW 2550, Australia

Automatic features of modern cameras make it easy to avoid the technical and sometimes daunting aspects of photography. However, the decisions your camera makes on your behalf are often less than ideal and rarely take into account your own artistic intent.

This workshop will improve your understanding of photography fundamentals so you can make better decisions about your camera’s settings and modes for each photographic situation.

Fungi photography creates some interesting challenges due to their size and their environment. The workshop will provide suggestions on some methods to meet these challenges and place these solutions into an artistic context.

The workshop centres on the use of digital cameras with interchangeable lenses such a digital SLR or mirrorless cameras.

Workshop topics will include:

  • fungi photo appreciation: what makes for a great photo?
  • camera manual mode and The Exposure Triangle
  • handling depth of field and using focus stacking
  • automating the manual mode
  • composing the mushroom
  • camera gear in the field
  • dealing with light
  • post processing images

The techniques presented are applicable to many other forms of nature photography such as flowers or insects.

Worskshop includes light refreshments (tea, coffee), but BYO lunch.
