Every Picture Tells A Story

Let’s get this out of the way: we can tell an f-stop from a bus stop, we know how to compute the hyperfocal distance, when and how to use a filter, what shutter speed to use to freeze the flight of a bird or to render a waterfall as smooth as silk, the rule of thirds and the direction of light.

If you need help with that, you can count on us. No question is below us and we will always be there to help you with any doubt you might have.

But we strive to teach you much more than how to use your equipment. We want to show you how to identify a clear subject in your photos, how to use composition, contrast, sharpness, and color to enhance the subject and draw the viewer’s eye to it.

We will teach you how to look out for other elements in a scene and determine whether they support the main actor or detract from it, in which case they should be excluded from the frame or their importance should be diminished.

With a few simple principles in mind, you will be able to create images that tell a clear story, with no distractions, and that capture the attention of viewers.

Here are some of the topics that will be discussed during the workshop:

  • What it means to have talent and the importance of art.
  • Focusing the viewer’s attention using visual elements.
  • Conveying mood.
  • Static and dynamic compositions, visual mass and negative space.
  • The Gestalt┬áprinciple.

Post Processing

We believe in simplicity and that it should be possible, even for beginners, to make your images look great without having to waste hours in front of the computer or spend huge amounts of money on software, books, and online training courses.

For this reason, we have partnered with PhotoTraces to give a copy of their Travel Photography Bundle for Adobe Lightroom, containing over 160 presets, for free to every workshop student. This is a value of over $200 and it is for you to keep also after the end of the tour.

We will show you how to use Adobe Lightroom, in combination with the Rapid Editing System by PhotoTraces, to achieve consistent and beautiful results from the photos you shoot during our workshops.
