Photography workshop

Spring in Podpoľanie region

Discover with me the most beautiful corners  in Hriňová countryside.
Endless fields, cherry blossoms or winding paths between houses and fields. These are the scenery of countryside in Hriňová. The meadows themselves are nestled in the middle of the mountains, which provide wonderful views for the photographer. It is a paradise for landscape photography full of lines and contrasts. Of course, the views directly from the dields are no less beautiful, where you can find many beautiful details or a solitaire with a blooming cherry tree.
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 designed primarily for photography at longer focal lengths. We will look at the top places for sunrise and sunset photography. Together, we will focus on the use of light in a given type of landscape, on creating a suitable composition, but also on the technical side of photography. 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 designed for both groups of photographers. In addition, we will explain how important planning is and something I call systematic photography. Later, over a beer and good food, we will talk more about landscape photography as I see it, and l also look at basic but also advanced photo editing (RAW, exposure blending, time blending, focus stacking, etc.).

Advantages of the workshop

  • a location made for landscape photography
  • I have been going to Hriňová for years, and that why I know enough places suitable for both sunset and sunrise
  • I will be happy to pass on my know-how regarding interesting places, photography as such but also the post-process
  • 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 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. During the entire photo shoot in the field, there will be a joint discussion on various practical topics related to landscape photography
