Borneo Macrophotography Masterclass
During this trip, we will guide you into the rainforest night and day and help you discover the awesome invertebrate fauna of Borneo : insects unlike any you have ever seen, spiders, fluorescent scorpions and even crabs !
But not only that. You will also have the opportunity to photograh amphibians and reptiles, plants, monkeys, birds and landscapes… The Borneo rainforest is a biodiversity heaven in particular at night when all the hidden life reveals itself to the photographer. And maybe if we are patient or lucky, we may encounter an Orangutang !
Beyond a simple workshop we are offering a comprehensive macrophotography Masterclass which we have tailored to allow you to bring back unique images and to help you grow your technique to another level.
Each day a different mini workshop will be proposed, focusing on a specific macrophoto topic : studio, off-camera flash, white background, focus stacking, backlighting or UV illumination will be some of these techniques. And you will be able to immediately put them in application during our evening outings !
Finally, do not let your images remain buried in the depths of your hard disks : we will show you how to optimize your workflow, select and process quickly your best images, how to use them in digital, design and more than anything how to highlight them on Internet, social media and your own website ! Give more visibility to your images and bring them to the widest possible audience, for the recognition they deserve.
And all of that of course in idyllic tropical settings and a friendly atmosphere filled with our shared passion for macrophoto and the beauty of the natural world !
