Our Venice photography workshop has been designed to teach you a wide range of photography skills by making full use of the location. The workshop will teach you the skills and techniques to both capture and process your photographs.
Achieving the correct exposure
Using the histogram
Seeing in black and white as well as colour
Using all of your camera settings
Photographers of all skill levels are welcome. You are required to know the basics of your camera; insert a memory card and take a photograph with it before attending. This Venice workshop will appeal to everyone who wants to learn both the art and skills of photography as well as those who are seasoned photographers and want a guided tour of Venice. Photographic workshops provide a great opportunity for learning and sharing experiences alongside other photographers.
There will be at least two formal lessons on post-processing techniques using Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and NIK Collection of filters by DxO.
This list is offered as guidance only. Once you are booked on the Tuscany workshop we will contact you with more details about itinerary and what you should pack. Naturally you will need to bring enough clothing and money for the duration of your stay as well as:
Please be aware that airport security will not allow you to carry a tripod in your hand luggage if it has spiked feet, even if the spikes are retractable. Pack it in your suitcase and there shouldn't be a problem but please check with your airline before leaving or bring a tripod that has rubber only feet.
During your visit to Tuscany, you are provided with your own room at La Mezzaluna. This B&B is located 4km from Barga and has spectacular views of the Apuan Alps. It is the perfect base for our workshop due to its location and the warm welcome from your host, Rita.
The location of La Mezzaluna allows us instant access to the local roads in all directions. After leaving La Mezzaluna, we can drive in any direction and reach our destinations quickly, meaning we spend less time driving, and more time photographing.
Our host, Rita, has lived and worked in Garfagnana for over 30 years. Rita owned and ran her restaurant for 30 years until recently opening it up to host Tuscan cooking classes. So, your host is a Tuscan chef of 30 plus years who now teaches the skills of Tuscan cuisine to students from all around the world. What a place to stay!
