Photography workshops

There are many metiers of photography, such as landscape, sports, wildlife, architecture, street and portrait photography.
All have in common that only the right handling of the camera brings results.
For this we have to get to know our camera's functions and its possibilities.
We need to understand the influence that parameters such as exposure time, aperture, focal length and ISO have on our imaging results.
And how we can regulate those parameters with our camera settings.
In the second step we should deal with color, light / shadow and image composition.
This gives us the basics that allow us to make good quality images, and move us to virtually any area of ​​photography.
And if we are not 100% perfect, we can use editing software, such as Lightroom in a third step to improve and even extend the picture.

In the basic workshop, the focus is on steps one and two.
At the build-up / portrait workshop, the focus is on steps two and three.

A system camera with interchangeable lenses is a great advantage.
For further processing on the 2nd day, participants need a notebook or a large, fast tablet.
The entire course is very practice-oriented.
On the first day we deal with lighting, composition and posing. We work with shades, reflectors and optionally with unleashed flash.
We spend the whole day in the area, developing ideas and putting them together.
Practical task: Portrait of participants taking into account the environment.
On the second day we start early in the morning with a model (optionally two models).
We shoot the styling and makeup as a making-of series.
Afterwards we visit two to three beautiful spots on the North Island to implement our findings from the previous day with a model.
Back in Agios Georgios we look at our material together and work on a picture of each participant with the StoneViewer and NIK-Collection or optionally with Lightroom / Photoshop.
We end the course in the evening in a relaxed atmosphere.
