Hop on the air conditioned min-bus with six other photographers and explore Provence with your camera and the group including the famous Vangogh sunflowers, the streets and ruins of the town of St. Remy de Provence, the lavender fields in bloom near Gordes, Bastille day fireworks and more! Since you’ll be with other photographers, time of day, lighting and guidance in the photographic field will be considered and available. The tour is designed for intermediate photographers who understand camera and software basics. We will review and critique photographs, discuss capture techniques and put together a slideshow to show peers during the final night of the workshop. While no specific post production processes will be covered – the Instructor is an expert in Photoshop and Lightroom and will be available to answer questions about these topics. Students should plan to be comfortable digitally editing work on their own with guidance. LEARN MORE
