Alan “Photography lighting doesn’t have to be expensive.”

By: Michael Fox

Alan Moore led our annual Photography Workshop again this year with seventeen participants learning to use their camera, differences between landscape and macro photography and even tips on low cost recycled photography lighting tools like this simple cardboard and aluminum foil reflector for macro photography.

The workshop venue was the Fox Gully Bushcare site with the marque set-up among the trees for a real photography in the bush experience. After learning the basics participants were sent on assignment to practice their skills. Over lunch Alan critiqued a selection of photos from each participant giving feedback on lighting, focus and composition. Read Alan’s review.


Bush fashion in the bush

After lunch, a new feature of this year’s workshop was fashion shoot the inspiration of our our Co-President, Laurie Deacon. Alan presented the basics of photographing people before participants were again sent on assignment into the bush, this time for a fashion shoot.



Fashion and nature



The bush themed fashions, creations of Jolanta Szymczyk, had just been featured in a fashion parade at the Ekka. The models, Liliana, Georgina, Diana and Maria generously gave their afternoon to model Jolanta’s fashions and Alan organised lighting in the most unlikely venue.

Congratulations to all participants for the amazing photography and Alan, Jolanta, Liliana, Georgina, Diana and Maria for your generous support.
