Photo adventure workshops and portrait photography

During our Photo Adventure part of each workshop you will become comfortable photographing strangers while exploring the unexplored. We speak about low light photography and compositions, but only as a means to have the tools for expressing what you feel when you approach a scene, to make sure that the technical part of photography is not standing between you and the way you want your images to look or what you want to express. 

Our aim is to assist you with making a  photographic essay - wherein you explore how you and your camera can translate the reality that presents itself along the journey into the emotions or story you want to communicate to your audience. This will awake your own photographic voice and enable you to tell the story of this adventure in your own unique visual voice.

During Portrait photography workshops we will speak about using digital as well as film cameras, 35mm format and Medium format and all the technical items such as the Zone system, how to interpret your light meter to ensure that the negatives are correctly exposed. More important however is how to work with your subjects, finding beautiful natural light, the principles of posing. We also discuss the workflow and cooperation with film labs. Learning by doing means that we will have a model ready on some selected workshops to practice what we learned. People who prefer to shoot digital are also welcome.
