New Eyes on Nature: Introduction to Environmental & Macro Photography Workshop
Interested in photographing natural environments and their extraordinary creatures?
Keen to improve your macro photography skills to help with insect identification?
As part of this year’s Slopes to Summit Bioblitz and Wild Pollinator Count events we’re hosting a practical macro photography workshop with fungi expert and nature photographer Alison Pouliot.
Whether you have a DSLR or a point-and-shoot camera, this introductory workshop can get you started with macro photography, and will also be of interest to those seeking to improve their existing macro photography skills.
Photography is a powerful tool for capturing the curiosities of nature.
This workshop introduces participants to the principles of photographic technique for photographing environmental subjects. Understanding the basics of camera operation and photographic techniques can increase the quality and interpretative value of images.
How familiar are you with your subject? Knowing what to photograph and how to best represent environmental subjects determines the impact and influence of images.
We will specifically address participants’ interests in exploring the art and science of visualising and communicating environmental subjects.
The workshop includes an interactive and illustrated theoretical component followed by a field trip to put principles into practice.
When: Sunday 15th November 2015, from 10am to 3pm
Where: Wirraminna Environmental Education Centre, Burrumbuttock (30 mins drive north of Albury, NSW)
Cost: $25 including lunch
Places are limited and bookings are required.
