Introduction & Welcome with Guy
The first session of the course will include a short introduction by the Photography Experts team to explain to how the Masterclass course will work. This will include a full tour of your subscriber features, your document and recording repository, and use of the forum features. There will also be tips on how to make the most of Zoom to fully participate in the live sessions, and engage with Guy and your fellow course members. Access to technical support by Photography Experts will continue throughout the duration of the entire course.
Session 1 Fungi Field Skills
The first Masterclass session is all about finding interesting subjects and making sure you’re suitably equipped to create striking images of them! Guy will talk about equipment requirements, planning a shoot and basic image composition. Lighting techniques can be crucial if you want your Fungi images to really stand out. Guy will show various examples of where certain lighting conditions can be used to good effect. He will also show how he uses artificial light to emphasise his subjects. Finally he will explain in detail how he achieves front to back sharpness in his images with the use of focus-stacking.
Session 2 Processing your Fungi photographs
In the second Masterclass session Guy will show how he processes his Fungi images in Adobe Lightroom and Topaz De-noise AI, and also how he incorporates focus-stacking into his workflow. This will include a live demonstration using Helicon Focus Pro. The aim of this session is to ensure you have the skills to get the most out of your beautifully lit and well-composed macro images, including those taken using extreme magnification.
Remote Working Forum Support
Guy has purposely built in a short break between the teaching sessions and the final review group session to allow everyone to work through the ideas and information imparted, he will though be collaborating via the forum with tips and supportive advice and individual images and concepts are worked on.
Session 3 Bringing it all together
During this session, Guy will bring the group back together and work through some of the course members own images for critique or discussion and will advise how you might refine your composition or lighting technique. He will also assist you with any images you might be struggling to get right. This session will also bring together all the teaching and be a great opportunity to recap any topics from previous sessions that might require further clarification. Course participants will have used the forum extensively by now and Guy will also be on hand to add help and advice over the following few weeks.
Guy's knowledge on his subject including both the equipment and the techniques was immense. To be able to interact with somebody of his experience on an almost one to one basis in the time of lockdown was a real joy. I personally came away with a much better understanding of the demonstrated techniques and the little insights needed to produce the next level of taking photos. The interaction with a group was new to me, and I found it to be extremely pleasant and stimulating.
I cannot express too highly my admiration for Guy and his masterclass on photographing fungi. His photos are outstanding and he is only too willing to share all his techniques and knowledge. He answered every question whether from beginners or advanced photographers with equal enthusiasm and patience. The course is terrific value for money
