1 Day: Travel Photography

Los Gatos, California

February 10 (7AM – 3PM)

8 participants


NOTE: As a heads up, this is the last time this class will be taught. Don't delay your registration.

What a better excuse to travel for a photographic adventure? Travel photography is very exciting, but hard to master. You have little control over the weather, you are typically on a schedule, you are surrounded by other photographers, and you are not as familiar with the places as you are with “your backyard/favorite location shoots”. How do you make compelling images in these situations? What do you do before the trip to enhance your experience as a travel photographer? During this workshop, we’ll take you on a “typical travel day” but at a local place. We’ll learn creative tips to make images that have a personal touch, learn how to capture sunrise, morning, and mid-day light.

In the afternoon, we’ll have a classroom session, where we’ll demonstrate workflow to process and store your images with accuracy, speed, and quality.

Upon signing up for the workshop, you will receive a coursebook that details the photoshoot location and travel photography tips.

What will you learn during this workshop:
• What to bring on a photographic adventure
• Various tips to overcome the “blue” sky
• Composition tips to make images with a personal touch
• Hands-on exercises to expand your comfort zone
• Reviews of your images, focused on "what else can I do?”
• Capturing sunrise, morning and mid-day light
• Demonstration of a “travel workflow” to store and process your images

We are looking forward to meeting you at the travel photography workshop.

Don't delay your registration, as there is very few sessions scheduled this year.
