Clients photos from Fungi Close up and Macro Workshop
 
Fungi are the perfect subject for the keen close up and macro photographer. They come in a huge variety of colours, shapes, and sizes and the peak autumn season when i run this workshops reveals them at their best as wonderful subjects to photograph. Once you know where to look for them and have mastered the basic photographic and lighting techniques they are an excellent subject to practise and perfect your close up and macro photography skills.
 
To improve our chances of success and to help us learn more about fungi I have teamed up with Justin Long, an experienced mycologist, who has been studying fungi for around 15 years. Having led very popular adult education fungi forays since 2008 he is the perfect person to introduce us to this exciting subject and from whom to learn more about identifying different types of fungi including the dangers of certain varieties.
 
Macro and close up is a field of photography which all too often can seem baffling and expensive. Through this workshop I will attempt to dispel both of these myths and to help you to understand just how easy and fun it is and can be. I will introduce you to some of my preferred techniques for photographing fungi looking to take best advantage of what natural light is available as well as how this can be augmented to optimise the settings the subjects are found in.

This is a very special and always popular workshop.

The following are a brief selection of some of the photos taken by previous guests on this workshop
