A perfect photo course for photographers who till now mainly use their automatic camera settings, and for those who are switching from a digital compact to a DSLR.
- Basic settings of your camera: speed, aperture, white balance and ISO values
- Using the histogram
- Difference between jpeg and raw files
- How to handle your camera in a great outdoor setting
It will enable you to decide in which situations to use your automatic camera settings and in which you should use your manual settings in order to take great pictures. Photo shoots on different locations – based on your favourite photo subjects – are combined with discussing and viewing the results. The photography short course in learning digital photography can easily be combined with our nature or travel photography short course.
The photography short courses are given by Anton Harfst. Anton is a professional photographer,specialized in outdoor photography. He lives and works on the Peloponnese, close to Sparta, and loves to share his passion for photography and Greece.
We plan the outdoor locations of each course in consultation with the participant. Thus they can be combined with visits to specific locations, sites, or museums, or with special events, ranging from olive or grape harvest to local festivals and music or theatre.
We are located in an old stone house in Xirokambi, 15 km south of Sparta. The workshop accommodation is located on the ground floor. Here we view the photo's together at the end of each day. If you do not carry a laptop, you can use one of our computers to download and backup your photos. Participants can enjoy our vine-covered terrace and garden with olive and orange trees. In the village you'll find cafes, restaurants and shops.
- Coffee, tea and lunch.
Note: We can arrange additional travel arrangements (hotel, travel, meals) upon request.
