Photography workshop

Spring in Slovakia 

Discover with me the most beautiful places in Slovakia
Endless fields, cherry blossoms 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 many beautiful details or a solitaire with a cherry blossom. We will also visit the beautiful village of Brdárka with a 100-year-old cherry orchard, as well as other beautiful places. And we will also look under the High Tatras to the region of Zamagurie, which is known for its wonderful views and picturesque landscape.
Each participant will receive the materials from the workshop in PDF, so that they can return to them at any time. All editing procedures are available in the form of video tutorials, 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.).
