Photography workshop

Frosty Tatras

Winter near Tatra Streams and under Belianki
Winter under the Tatras can be really beautiful, and I have been discovering its charm more and more in recent years. Snow-covered trees and streams with views of the Tatras, frozen Štrbské pleso or even sunrises below Beliankske  Tatras. All this gives us many possibilities for taking pictures.
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 and tourists interested in landscape 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 intended for both groups of photographers. Along with that, together we will learn how to use auxiliary equipment more effectively when photographing in the field (tripod, tripod tips, cable trigger, filters), we will explain the importance of planning and something I call systematic photography. Over a beer and a meal, we will later talk more about basic but also advanced photo editing (RAW, exposure blending, time blending, focus stacking, etc.). 

Advantages of the workshop

  • The Tatras foothills is an attractive location offering a really wide variety of photo spots
  • in autumn, the larch trees become colored, there may already be snow in the Tatras, and therefore we have a chance for beautiful color contrasts
  • we will go through the most beautiful locations
  • 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. During the entire photo shoot in the field, there will be a joint discussion on various practical topics related to landscape photography.

Necessary photo equipment
