It does not always have to be Norway, South Africa or Iran! Fantastic landscape photographs can also be taken right on our doorstep - and Saxon Switzerland is the best proof of this.
During this 2-day photo workshop you will learn about image composition, why good light is essential (and how we find it), image editing and photography - and all this in manual mode!
Together we will visit the best photo locations in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains.

The Saxon Switzerland NP near the Czech border offers not only unbelievable possibilities for hikers, climbers, outdoor enthusiasts but also especially for photographers.
The bizarre rock formations and rustic bridges in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains have inspired famous painters like Caspar David Friedrich to paint their masterpieces and have lost none of their magic even today.

After breakfast we will have an interactive seminar on image editing with Lightroom and Photoshop. You will learn the basic teachings of colour theory and how to use them to make your pictures stand out. 
In the late afternoon we drive together to our second photo location, the "Gorisch". An impressive rock formation which you will photograph under professional guidance in the golden light of the evening sun.
