Workshop description:

Discover the extraordinary region of the Italian Dolomites with an experienced photographer Arkadiusz Palasinski. The trip is designed for photographers and in every aspect has been worked out to meet your expectations.

Photographing sunrises and sunsets in the most beautiful places of the Italian Dolomites, adjusting the program to weather conditions, post-production sessions and talking about photography – you will experience it all during this photo-trip.
This workshop is a great adventure with an unforgettable atmosphere created by the one of the most beautiful mountains in the world, listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
Not important if you a beginner looking for advice and answers to basic questions or more experienced photographer with great knowledge –  you will be able to photograph in this unique place with the support of your tutor.
The workshop will cover:
  • composition, exposure and light usage
  • basic and advanced digital processing
  • morning and evening photo sessions in the best locations and viewpoints
  • practical learning of shooting techniques including tricks used by professional photographers
  • practical application of photographic filters and other landscape photography techniques
  • discussion on photos taken during the workshops and participant’s portfolio

Recommended equipment:

The difficulty level of the workshop will be adjusted to the individual expectations of the participants.
For landscape photography in this region the best focal length range will be 24-200mm (for full frame with 35mm equivalent) and about 15-135 for cameras with crop. To be prepared for all photographic themes, it is worth expanding this range to 16-400mm (for full frame, 35mm).
It is expected that the participant is familiar with the basic operation of his camera, but you can always ask questions also in this area. Please take the user manual of your camera with you.
Necessary equipment is a stable tripod with a head. Additionally, you can equip yourself with a cable release to the camera. This will not be necessary if the camera has a shutter release delay (timer).
It is recommended that you will bring your own laptop with photo processing software installed (Lightroom, Photoshop, Nik Collection). This will allow you to work independently with your own photos during the post processing sessions.
