Highlights and Shadows – Photographing in the undergrowth

The Cobaw Ranges are home to an incredible diversity of animals, fungi and plants. In this workshop participants will learn how to photograph various organisms 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.

Photographs are also an important part of the scientific survey of Australia’s biodiversity. Images contribute to knowledge of the distribution and ecology of species. Requirements for taking appropriate images for scientific data repositories will also be discussed.

Following an indoor interactive theoretical session the afternoon will be spent in the field putting techniques into practice. This workshop is suitable for advanced photographers with a good knowledge of camera operation and photographic principles.

Strictly limited to 8 places.

Further environmental photography workshops, forays and events are listed here.
