Become a better photographer

 

For whom?

For every active enthusiast of photography who dreams about their pictures looking even better. No matter if you’ve just started your journey with photography or you feel that your photos are lacking „something” – we will help you to break the barrier.

Aim

Simply fanstastic photos!
This is what this workshop is for. You are going to gain more confidence during practical sessions, get closer to a stunning effect and, at the end of a day, to raise your level.

Idea

Neither technique nor imagination should be the limit for you!
Therefore, the aim of the workshop is to master the fundamental techniques. We will focus on a specific technique and on a single picture so that you get a new weapon in your photographic arsenal.
Sometimes less is more, sometimes less … it’s just less. We’ll explain why and how it works in practice.
