Baler Landscape Photography Workshop 2020
Thank you for your interest in being part of this landscape photography workshop in the surfing and rugged coastal town of Baler, Aurora. We will guide you through and help you attain the highest possible learning experience during this trip.
This workshop aims to teach beginning and intermediate photographers the fundamental techniques and skills required to capture great coastal sceneries. Participants will be given reading materials prior to the trip and on-field lectures about the proper use of gears, compositions, understanding light, and visual design. This workshop offers a wide variety of different styles and approaches in creating your own photographic representations of the real world, from colour landscape images to black and white photos.
Part of this workshop is the editing / post-processing session where colour and black / white workflows will be shared and taught to participants. Adobe Camera Raw, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom will be utilized as editing softwares during the session. Participants will be required to bring their own computers with the mentioned softwares installed. By the way, a mouse will be helpful in editing your images.
You will surely get the most from this workshop and enjoy the experience more if you already have a prior basic understanding of exposure and how cameras work. Aside from that, this trip is a venue to gain new friends and experience great adventures.
