WORKSHOP – Trees in Focus


Trees in Focus

Trees provide intriguing yet challenging photographic subjects. Photographing them for their aesthetic or scientific qualities requires both an understanding of specific photographic techniques and intimate knowledge of the subject.

Large old trees are also vital keystone structures in rural and urban landscapes. However, the value of these trees is often overlooked in planning such as road and fire management. Documenting these trees visually is important both as a scientific record and in garnering interest in their conservation.

This hands-on and interactive workshop combines theoretical, critique and practical sessions to assist participants to improve both their technical and creative skills. It begins with a discussion of participants’ interest in photographing trees as well as any challenges or issues they have experienced with camera operation and photographic techniques. These will be discussed and techniques for overcoming them demonstrated throughout the workshop. This is followed by a field trip to put techniques into practice through various in situ scenarios.

Further environmental photography workshops and forays are listed here.
