Nature photography - comprehensive workshops

During the 1 and 3-day workshops you will learn how to photograph all aspects of nature surrounding you. The program of the workshops include:

- landscape photography

- photography of animals, birds and plants

- macrophotography and close-up photography

The 3-day workshop in nature photography is a great way to learn how to take creative shots of the surrounding natural environment.

During the workshop I will focus primarily on providing you with knowledge about interesting photographic techniques, ranging from bird photography to macrophotography. Nature photography is a very broad field, but I hope that after the workshop everyone will find something for themselves, or explore in depth the issues which they already find interesting. Please refer to the full program and photo gallery. I hope that the subject will suit you and we will soon meet in the field.

We will photograph all kinds of animate and inanimate objects in our environment. Landscape photography will teach you important principles of composition. In photography of animals you will learn to capture wildlife, as well as pets and farm animals. In bird photography you will see how to take photos of dynamic groups of birds secretly, upon approach and out of the car. You will become familiar with the rules of image composition, as well as how and where to search for different species of birds. On this occasion we will visit interesting locations which will give us the opportunity to document mesmerizing species and natural sites.

 

In case of plants you will become privy to tricks used by many photographers. While studying macrophotography and close-up photography, you will acquire knowledge about how to use different types of focal lengths and M42 lenses, so as to obtain fascinating bokeh effects. An important element will be the creation of the so-called "macro magic" in which a fairytale background in the form of a circular glare plays a key role. You will learn how to take photos in a 1: 1 scale and smaller with the use of different lenses, accessories and equipment in general.

We will concentrate on compositions that can be called "magic" or "fairy-tale" macro. In this type of pictures a key role is played by a background consisting of characteristic stains. There are a lot of solutions! However, you can be sure that in less than three days we will be able to discuss and test all of them thoroughly.
