This photographic field day focuses on fabulous fungal subjects of the nearby Lerderderg State Park.
Fungi make stunning but challenging subjects. Participants will learn how to photograph fungi in different contexts to capture both their scientific and aesthetic nature. We will focus on the particular challenges of macro-photography such as high contrast, low light, colour issues and techniques for controlling depth of field, addressing both technical aspects of exposure management and creative aspects of composition.
The field day is aimed at those photographers using Single Lens Reflex cameras with an advanced level of photographic knowledge.
We will be working with a small group of participants and we will be outside for the entire day, so wear sturdy shoes and bring wet weather gear if necessary. A light lunch, refreshments and field notes are provided.
