WORKSHOP – Fungi in Focus

The Wombat Forest is home to an incredible diversity of fungi. With their peculiar forms and amazing array of colours, fungi make intriguing photographic subjects.

In this workshop 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.

Following a highly interactive indoor theoretical session, the afternoon will be spent in the field searching for fungi and putting techniques into practice.

This workshop will be presented by two professional photographers, Alison Pouliot and Valérie Chételat with plenty of opportunity for individual assistance with camera operation and photographic principles. It is suitable for participants with all kinds of cameras and levels of skill.
