Macro Photography Workshop (mushrooms) in Fagersta

By Amazing Nature Scandinavia

I will learn you how to photograph mushrooms and mosses from a totally other perspective than you've photographed them before. You will learn techniques that you can try out by yourself on mushrooms and other macro photography subjects. You will be amazed about the possibilities in macro photography and you will have learned a lot after this workshop.

      A Midsommar Night's Dream
      My wife and I booked the Midsommar package for June 2022 with Sylvia from Amazing Nature Scandinavia. What a wonderful experience! This 3-day package included a stay at Hotel Sommarhagen in Malexander, Östergötland, Sweden, an area of spectacular lakes, forests, fields and small villages. The hotel is simple but lovely; the room was comfortable and quiet and the setting was peaceful and gorgeous. The first night meal was hearty and delicious and we received a warm welcome from the hotel's owners, Marianne and Bengt-Göran. Midsommar Day we woke up and, after a delicious breakfast, we went into the village to help with the decoration of the maypole - the community was welcoming and we were able to join in fully. We went back to the hotel for an incredible Midsommar feast - what a treat to try so many wonderful Swedish foods! - and then returned to the village to watch the dancing and celebrations. Then back to the hotel for a long evening feast, snaps and great conversation with other guest and Marianne and Bengt-Göran. The next day was our favorite - at breakfast Marianne announced that she and her husband had marked out 14 trails through the forest and at the end of each one was a lake, so we would each get our own lake for the day. They gave us a picnic basket and sent us off. My wife and I hiked through a beautiful forest and found our lake - so big, peaceful and quiet - and we had it to ourselves for hours on end on a warm sunny day. We hiked back and were treated to another wonderful dinner of local game and fish, forest berries, and locally grown vegetables. After dinner, we sat outside with new friends and talked until almost midnight, watching the hours-long sunset and enjoying the overnight glow in the sky. We could not have asked for a better experience! Sylvia at Amazing Nature was very helpful as we investigated and booked this package - absolutely first-class service. We would readily recommend Amazing Nature Scandinavia and the Midsommar package and hope to book with Amazing Nature Scandinavia again!

      Exceptional service!
      When you sign up on a photography workshop abroad there are two main things you are concerned about. One is the quality of the tours & whether the itinerary will meet your expectations and the other is how you are taken care of. I cannot enphasize enough how professional and knowledgeable Sylvia is and how far she went out of her way to make sure that my trip was faultless. Wildlife is very unpredictable when it comes to locating and photographing animals but that is not a problem because the quality of the guides and the hides she uses are exceptional. Each workshop is a memorable experience including a welcomed chat & introduction at the beginning and ensuring that you are satisfied till the end and happy with what you have seen and learnt. Also top marks for Sylvia with the arrangement of accommodation and transport. Everything was spot on and I was not inconvenienced in any way. The quality of the accommodation, especially in Farna is exceptional and a pleasure to be in such beautiful surroundings. I have no hesitation to recommend Sylvia for your next trip with Amazing Nature Scandinavia - you will not be dissapointed!

      Sweden is for silence. Sylvia is the one who organizes this silence experience in a unique and very thoughtful way. Superb.

      A great experience and first-class service
      We went spotting owls, went for an osprey trip very early in the morning, did the nature walk and stayed overnight in a bear hide. All great experiences that showed us how vast and beautiful Sweden's nature is. We are very grateful to Sylvia who made a very personal program for us and made sure that this trip was a great experience. We received a clear description of what to expect, where to be at what time, how to get there, how long it would take us, and what to see along the way. Great service and guidance!

      Awesome week seeking Scandinavian wildlife
      At first, I would come to Sweden just for the GGO, but then I've loved everything Sylvia has proposed to me: The Capercaiile courtship, the Osprey safari (we've seen a lot of them) and the bear hide! All the guides were amazing, they make you feel at home I've loved the B&B and the Hotel, and Sylvia was so patient, with all the things that was changing from minute to minute, because of the Covid-19 I had a really good week, and i just can't wait to come back!

      Well organized phototrip to Norway to capture northerlight
      Because of the experience of living in Scandinavië herself, a good preparation and being a good photografer herself, Sylvia made this a great trip. She was able to give good advise for photograping and if an unforseen event happened she was able to react quickly and good. It was a great 7 day experience.

      Beautiful Norway
      Thanks to Sylvia from Amazing Nature Scandinavia we spend a week in the north of Norway. We had all kinds of weather which was quit an experience, we even had a snow storm . We were lucky to see the Northern Lights 4 times in 4 different places. You showed us such a beautiful nature, it made me emotional. You took care of us and our accomodation and even in unforeseen circumstances you managed to find a solution. Thank you oof this "happy" week.

      Amazing Ospreys
      I took a couple of days with Amazing Nature Scandinavia for bird photography, focussing particularly on ospreys. There were at least 20 opportunities for photographing diving birds, with other species, notably white tailed eagles thrown in. I'm not one that likes roughing it and Sylvia found the perfect hotel for me - very comfortable, gourmet food and plenty of wildlife in the hotel grounds. I felt very well looked after throughout my short trip

      Relaxing vacation in Sweden
      If you like nature, rest and peace then this is something for you. The service I got was very good and very well prepared. You also get immediate feed back and follow up if things change. For example I booked a safari to spot a certain bird but the bird didn't return back to his location. So I immediately got a proposition to book another activity to replace it.

    Ik zal mij van 2019 de deugddoende familievakantie in Skinnskatteberg en Ulvsbomuren herinneren: een kort maar verrassend aangenaam bezoek aan Uppsala, genieten van het uitgestrekte Zweedse landschap, vele soorten vogels en eland spotten, mee op zoek gaan naar wolven en ze vlakbij horen huilen (!), rustig afwachten van uit een hut tot mamabeer en 2 cups langskomen en ondertussen vos, eekhoorns en vele (roof)vogels vlakbij zien. Leuke authentieke adresjes om te overnachten, een gids met een goed verhaal, heerlijke gesprekken bij de fika, net niet verdwalen in de bossen en niet te vergeten, de fotografietips van Sylvia: Amazing Nature Scandinavia bezorgt je een zorgeloze vakantie vol natuurbeleving als je gewend bent om alles zelf in elkaar te puzzelen maar nu eens geen zin had. Sylvia komt ter plaatse op je verblijf langs en regelt afspraken tot in de puntjes. We hebben dat geapprecieerd en ook de babbel en heel erg van de vakantie genoten!

    Jag fick många bra tips, hur man ställer in kameran vid makrofoto. Vilken utrustning
    Som är bra att ha med sig i skogen. Hur man kan göra för att få en spännande bild.
    Sylvia är en mycket bra lärare. Vid hade några trevliga timmar i skogen. Hon bjöd på
    Gott fika med äppelkaka vid en vacker sjö.
    Kan verkligen rekommenderas!
