Photography workshop

Autumn in Lazo Podpoľania

Discover with me the most beautiful corners of Podpolian ski slopes in Hriňová.
Endless fields, autumn-colored fruit trees, or winding paths between houses and fields. These are the scenery of Podpolian laz in Hriňová. The lazys 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 laz are no less beautiful, where you can find more than one beautiful detail or solitaire with a red cherry.

Characteristics of the workshop

The workshop is intended primarily for photographers interested in landscape photography. The nature of the landscape makes this course designed primarily for photography at longer focal lengths.  You can be a complete beginner who wants to see more of your camera's capabilities, or you can_cc781905-5cde-3194 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_to be an advanced photographer who would like to gain an even deeper understanding of composition creation methods 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'll talk more about basic but also advanced photo editing (HDR, time blending, focus stacking, etc.) later. 

Advantages of the workshop

  • location as made for landscape photography
  • I've been going to Hriňová for years, and that's why I know a lot of places suitable for both sunset and sunrise
  • 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


  • 1 day - we will meet in the afternoon at 13:00 at the guest house at the workshop venue. After a short introduction and basic information, we will go to the first location for a joint early evening photo shoot. After returning to the accommodation si  we will explain the workshop program and the places we will visit, check the weather possibilities and explain the basic theory for photographing this type of landscape, so that you will be sufficiently prepared for the next photo shoots :)
  • 2nd day- early in the morning we will go for the morning photography of the first light. Weather permitting, we will take photos until late morning. After the lunch break, we will focus on theory and post-process. We will then move to the location for sunset. After that, only a transfer to the accommodation, where again  we will go over everything from the previous day and look at some photos together. 
  • 3rd day- in the morning we will get up early again and go to the sunrise and catch the first light on (hopefully) blossoming cherry blossoms. After taking pictures, return to the guesthouse and around 12:00 end of the workshop and the journey home. 
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. During the entire photo shoot in the field, there will be a joint discussion on various practical topics related to landscape photography.
