Depending on prior knowledge of the workshop participants, we give introductions into the different fields of photography, basic knowledge about the camera and its functions as well as its use during our travel. On five chosen days of the travel, our photo coach is on hand with help and advice for you the whole day, lends his support in set tasks and phase you in the secrets of photography at first hand. Subsequently, an in-depth picture review of the day’s images takes place for each participant. How can I stage the chameleon perfectly? Why is not the eye, but the nose tip of this lemur sharp? How can I make the rice terraces stand out better against the blue sky? All these and many more questions will be answered. To round off the workshop, each participant gets an individually matching training.
Naturally, we’re available for questions, tips and suggestions during all other days of your travel, too. There’s no “cookie-cutter approach” in our courses!
