Mushroom Photography Workshop
Learn to capture those mycological wonders from one of the premier mushroom photographers in the nation! This full-day workshop will teach you the best techniques for capturing mushrooms in all their glory. We will discover tricks on composing photos, how to best utilize lighting in often dark places, and finding the perfect specimens to photograph.
Any camera will work, a DSLR camera or compact digital camera with macro capabilities is preferred. Bring your tripod if you have one. This workshop will be both indoors and out; wear appropriate clothes for two hours of fieldwork, likely in cold and damp settings.
Instructor Noah Siegel’s field mycology skills are extensive — he has spent over two decades seeking, photographing, identifying, and furthering his knowledge about all aspects of macrofungi. Noah is one of the premier mushroom photographers in the nation, having won numerous awards from the North American Mycological Association (NAMA) photography contest. His technique and attention to detail are unrivaled, arising from a philosophy of maximizing utility for identification purposes while maintaining a high degree of aesthetic appeal.
