Tuscany photography landscape workshop – The goal of the photography workshop is to build a stunning portfolio, provide both theoretical and practical knowledge and improve visual skills of the participants.
First of all, we’ll deal with the topics related to visual perception such as: composition, color, black and white, spatial configuration. We will also analyze the many aspects that determine the choice of the pictures and we’ll study the image processing. The participants will learn how to develop their own style.
The pictures taken will be revised on – screen sessions – submitting images directly from your media card on the Bulgarelli’s Mac. We’ll learn images editing focusing on the aspects of visual art and communication. We aim to build a stunning portfolio with a coherent style by the end of the workshop.
The photographic workshop is addressed for beginners and advanced photographers. Marco will follow individual needs, so the participants can shoot at their own speed. Because the workshop is both theoretical and practical based, there is plenty of time to get out and practice the new techniques and ask questions.
