Photography workshop

Ravines of the Slovak Paradise

The wild gorges of the Slovak paradise are most beautiful in spring, when they are full of water
Slovak paradise is most beautiful in spring. The ravines are full of water after the winter, the waterfalls are in full force and even flow where there is no trace of them in the summer. In addition, there are really few people there in the spring and that is the perfect time to photograph these places. The well-known Suché Belá, but also the less frequented and wilder Veľký Sokol. Those are places that are definitely worth it.
Each participant will receive the materials from the workshop in PDF, so that they can return to them at any time. All modification procedures are available in the form of video instructions, so it will definitely not happen that you forget the procedures by the time you get home :)

Characteristics of the workshop

The workshop is intended primarily for photographers interested in landscape photography. Due to the nature of the landscape, this course is intended primarily for photography at wider focal lengths.  We will focus on photography of streams and ravines in the Slovak Paradise. The advantage of this WS is that we are not directly dependent on the weather, as you can take photos in the gorges all day long.
The aim of the workshop will be to learn how to correctly capture the dynamics of water and how to properly compose in challenging spatial conditions. In the case of good conditions, we will go out for a sunset outside the Slovak Paradise. 
You can be a complete beginner who wants to see more about the possibilities of your camera, or you can be an advanced photographer who would like to understand even more deeply the methods of creating a composition or working with light. The course is intended for both groups of photographers. Along with that, together we will learn to use auxiliary equipment more effectively when photographing in the field (tripod, tripod tips, cable trigger, filters), we will explain how important planning is and something I call "systematic" photography. Over a beer and good food, we will later talk more about basic but also advanced photo editing (RAW editing, exposure blending, time blending, focus stacking, etc.).

Advantages of the workshop

  • wild nature and few people out of season
  • ideal for practicing composition and working with exposure time
  • all locations together, without the need for long transfers or exits
  • good mood and willingness to explain and thereby pass on as much knowledge and experience as possible
  • pleasant accommodation, where we always spend a relaxing evening taking photos

The program is not fixed and depends on the given situation, especially on the weather conditions and so that everyone has the opportunity and time to learn as much as possible on the spot and at the same time take good photos with them.
