The magic of Moravian fields

Moravia is a region in south-eastern Czech Republic primarily known for wine-growing, and thus for exquisite wine. It is equally interesting in terms of tourism and history. In recent years it has also become popular among photographers as a great place for landscape photography, which, however, is somewhat different from the traditional form, known from any other region in the world.

Vast spaces, lonely roadside shrines and fields undulating as far as the eyes can see continuously attract photographers from all over Europe. If you are interested in landscape photography you have certainly come across more than one image from this region. If not – feel free to browse through the photographs in the Gallery.

Price: 450 Euro/person

Minimum number of participants: 3

Including: accommodation, 3 meals/day, transport

For a group of >3 people the price can be negotiated.

During the workshops you will discover and learn:

- The principles of image composition

 - The use of different kinds of focal lengths, especially those in the range of> 100 mm in landscape photography

- Finding interesting spots with amazing views

- The technique of stacking in landscape photography

- How to use other cultural elements in creating inspiring shots

- How to integrate religious elements in the landscape

- How to use front, back and side-lighting

- How to create interesting sceneries also at night

Contrary to appearances, longer focal lengths up to 400 or 500 mm will also prove useful. Capturing interesting field patterns requires strong zooming.

What will you learn?

- Creating inspiring shots of landscapes

- Integration of plant motifs in the shot

- How to search for locations with high photographic value

- How not to spoil the commemorative photographs of monuments

- The best equipment for landscape photography, architecture and interesting spots (cameras, lenses , tripods, heads)

- The use of accessories (polarizing filters, graduated gray filter, graduated neutral gray filter) in practice

- HDR technique

- Shooting at different times of the day, with an emphasis on blue and golden hour

- Camera settings when shooting landscapes

- Depth of field and its use in different situations outdoors and indoors

- Practical use of different techniques in the photography of sacred objects, architecture and landscape – bracketing and HDR technique, stacking, long exposure

- Panoramic photography

- How to avoid taking banal shots

 

Equipment

The best lenses for capturing the symmetry, vastness of the landscape and interesting patterns are mainly those with short focal lengths or longer than 200 mm. The necessary minimum is a varifocal 18-55 mm lens.

We may not be able to use it for all the shots, but certainly for the majority. We can certainly use something longer, for example a cheap varifocal 70-300 mm lens or manual fixed lens. Other necessary accessories include a tripod and a release cable.
