WEEK END Cinque Terre-Photographic Workshop: December 15th-17th

Blue and clear sea, rocks, terraced vineyards on dry stone walls, unspoiled nature, coloured little houses in breathtaking locations steep over the sea…

Photographing the Cinque Terre is a great way to capture their beauty and to bring home their colors and magic.

This workshop has been developed for every level: from beginner to expert.

The photographic equipment to bring is very subjective and depends on many parameters, that’s why we don’t give fix rules. As a standard equipment we suggest in any case a (digital) SLR camera. To save weight and be as flexible as possible in most situations without the need to change lenses in adverse surroundings a  high quality travel zoom lens (for example 24 – 120 mm) works best. Also a wide angle for landscapes is very useful.

Don’t forget to bring your travel tripod for the night pic’s and some special land – and seascapes (remember the remote control and the cover for the viewfinder)! It’s up to you whether to bring along even a second camera body in order not to change lenses too often. Don’t forget sufficient memory cards (2 x 32 GB or 1 x 64 GB). If you want bring also a flash. A polarizing filter for the landscapes is often useful and with a ND filter we can make some great experiments.

3rd day: Depending on the weather conditions, the composition of the group we offer several choices how to pass this last half day of the weekend package: for example Portovenere and Palmaria Island exploration, trekking in the vineyards with great scenic views or a post-production session (lightroom) in case of bad weather.
