About the event

Learn how to treat your mushroom supermodels like the stars they really are with this photography workshop.

Your presenter, Andrew Larkin will induct you into the advanced photography features of your DSLR or Mirrorless camera and show you how to use them to create WOW shots of your best fungi friends.

Of course, these same techniques could be used for other subjects such as flowers and bugs – but they already get too much love and attention. Time to give the Third Kingdom some long overdue attention!

Over the course of the workshop, you will learn and practice:

· how to master the manual exposure mode.

· how to use macro lenses and what to do if you don’t have one

· how best to illuminate and compose your composting companions.

· how to use techniques to achieve images that would impossible otherwise.

What you will need:

· A digital camera of the “DSLR” or “Mirrorless” type – generally anything that has interchangeable lenses. And lenses – macro if you have one.

· A torch (LED type recommended – brighter is better). Flash/Speedlight if you have one.

· A tripod or sandbag (bag of rice?) to support your camera low to the ground

· Either a picnic blanket or tarp to put on the ground (don’t wear your Sunday best – it can get muddy)

· BYO Lunch. Tea/Coffee will be available.

Your presenter Andrew Larkin grew up with cameras but started getting a bit more serious with photography in the mid 1980’s. He bought one of the first Canon autofocus SLRs (EOS 620) and started working digitally in the early 1990’s with scanned film and prints. He bought the first of the digital SLRs to come to market (Canon EOS D30) and went through several generations of DSLR with Canon (10D, 5D, 5dMkII) before adding a Sony mirrorless system to the cupboard in 2014. Over the decades, Andrew has covered motorsports, weddings, street, landscape, and macro photography. Andrew has also entered photographic competitions with some success. He has also taught photography, print making, and colour management, and has one short film credit as stills photographer.
