About the workshop

This is a practical workshop on steet photography. In a good company and led by experienced photographer. All the transfers between the towns and shooting locations (as well as the lunches and dinners) will be organized (trains, minivans). The workshop envisages mainly individual shooting on sites (sufficient time is provided for that), however, the participants can also join the group leader in small groups. Before the shooting, in its process, as well as during the discussion of the photos made, each participant will get group and individual consultations on photography and post-processing.

Who is this workshop intended for?

Anyone can join the group. There are no particular requirements as regards to the photo equipment or the level of preparedness. The only thing that you need to have is a desire to shoot artistically. For the beginners, it is desirable to master basic shooting skills, some knowledge of camera controls and elementary skills in photo processing, so we lose less time on discussing technical aspects
