Difficulty of travel:

The tour, as organized, is accessible to anyone, there are small trips on foot on the beach with the overcoming of slight gradients.

The days could be long and tiring since sunrise until the sunset and the blue hour, being a photographic tour is obviously required a bit 'of spirit of adaptation and the desire to get fantastic images.

 

 

Clothing

The recommended clothing is a comfortable and waterproof trekking clothing in layers so you can cope with the different situations we might encounter. The shoes that I would recommend are trekking boots in gore tex, even if we don't have to cross rivers or streams, it could be necessary to put our feet in the water in order to get the perfect framing.

 

 

Max number of participants

The maximum number of participants is limited to 10 peoples. This maximum limit, in the interest of the participants, can not be exceeded. The workshop will be confirmed with a minimum number of 5 participants.

 

Signing up

Participants are requested to register in and confirming by 03/11/2018.

 

Photographic Themes

During the day will be offered advice and suggestions on all issues related to landscape photography: from the composition to the use of the camera, from the correct exposure to the choice of the most appropriate focal lenght, from the study of the best spots and will be given mainly emphasis on long and very long exposure techniques.

 

 

Equipment required

Assuming that you can make good photography by any means, we recommend a basic kit: a reflex / mirrorless (no matter whether it is Canon, Nikon, Sony or other), a wide-angle and a telephoto lens, a solid tripod and a remote control (recommended).

A set of filters is strongly recommended for those who want to experience the long exposure technique in person. It is advisable to have at least one ND 10 stop filter and a Graduated ND filter (you can find it on Amazon at an acceptable cost).
