Day 1 – April 23rd, 2019

In the afternoon, we’ll meet at the tulip field location where an explanation of in-camera techniques and how to shoot will be covered. For those interested, we will also do a drone workshop, but having a drone is not mandatory. People without a drone can either borrow one or enjoy shooting with a still camera. We will stay at the tulip field to shoot with still cameras all the way through sunset. During this session the tulip grower, Marcel, will tell us all about his flowers. We will be photographing from his private land. If you want to come back to Marcel’s land another day to shoot again, you are free to do so.

Day 2 – April 24th, 2019

 

In the afternoon we will be doing post processing instruction in Amsterdam (for about 4 hours, specifics to be provided before event). Elia and Albert will guide you through their techniques of post processing (beginners to advanced are welcome to join). Participants will learn how to do basic post processing like color and contrast correction, but advanced techniques like blending and focus stacking will also be covered. After that, the participants will have time to process their own photos with the one-on-one guidance from Elia and Albert. After the post processing session, we will go out together to have a fun sunset and blue hour shoot along the Amsterdam Canals.

 

No lodging or transportation are included in this workshop. It is recommended to rent a car for the first day of the workshop so you can easily get to the tulip fields (location TBA, around 40-60 minutes drive from Amsterdam). If you don’t have a driver’s license or are unable to rent a car, we will bring you with us in the car (limited spots available) or help connect you with participants interested in ride sharing.

PLEASE NOTE: April 27th is Kings Day. This is another reason to register for this event, extend your stay and experience Kings Day in Amsterdam, the biggest party day of the year in the Netherlands.
