Why and for whom?
This photography weekend is designed to learn different photographic tips and techniques in order to capture autumn at its best. Learn to observe the light and colors that this special season offers us.
How to use light in each capture? What composition is more accurate for a detail in nature? How can we take better pictures inside a forest?
This weekend is aimed at anyone who loves nature and wants to learn (or improve) their photographic process. Enjoying the space and knowing how to observe what we want to photograph is essential, therefore, we must learn to interprate the environment and understand it to know what we can photograph and in which way.
The plan On Saturday we will go to Sadernes, a natural space in Alta Garrotxa, where beautiful waterfalls, holm oaks and oaks abound. An especially beautiful place where the rock walls will accompany us all the way.
In the afternoon, after squeezing every last beam of light, we will go to our hotel and review some of the images of all the participants in order to see the different results of each one.
After dinner, for those who still have energy left, we will go to photograph the emblematic Romanesque bridge of Besalú at night.
On Sunday we will visit another emblem of La Garrotxa, a beautiful beech forest that hides places with a lot of charm.
After lunch, we will walk through a humid forest near Hostalets d'en Bas, where the water of the river will be the main character in our images.
