Photography in the Algarve
.….. only for true fans!
March 22th through March 28th 2017
P hotography is described in The Oxford Dictionary as follows: the art of practice of taking and processing photographs.
For us, this does not even start to cover the meaning of all what taking a good photograph involves. For us, 'Photography in the Algarve' means putting your heart and soul into making a picture of the image that only your eyes have so far discovered. And that is exactly what we are going to train and learn in our ‘photography week’ in the Algarve.
Renowned, but above al enthusiastic Dutch photographer Hans van der Mast will share all his love and knowledge of the art of photography with the participants of the week. For camera lovers, this will be the most beautiful week of the year!
In order to make a good photograph, you need a certain technical knowledge. What is aperture, iso-value and WB. Loaded with this knowledge, we’ll discuss the different kind of subjects, composition, light, and atmosphere. Because every subject can be photographed in a dozen different ways! And after the picture is taken, maybe you’d want to change some details to make it perfect. All this will be discussed and exercised in this week.
In this week, we will not restrict ourselves to one subject or area. 80% Of the time will be spent actively taking photographs. One day we might get up at 04:30am in order to catch that perfect sunrise over the red rocks, another day we focus on macro photography or we make pictures from the starry night sky. We keep a flexible schedule that we’ll adapt to the wishes of the participants and circumstances. Most of all we are going to learn a lot and enjoy ourselves enormously under the Portuguese sunshine!
