PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP IN THE BELGIAN ARDENNES
In autumn the days are getting shorter and the beautiful light, often accompanied by a light mist, is coming back. Without any doubts, autumn and spring are the most beautiful seasons for a landscape and nature photographer. During this workshop we will walk through the Belgian Ardennes. Situated in the south-east of Belgium, are one of nature's unspoiled areas, rich in fauna and flora, with vast forests, hills and fast flowing rivers. Discover the most beautiful villages in the Walloon province worth exploring. The beauty of being a landscape and nature photographers is the eagerness to explore. The overall landscape is beautiful, rich, dense trees, waterfalls, and fast flowing rivers. Our photography experience started almost immediately after entering the forest. This is unique environment that will give us the opportunity to create fantastic forest images beautifully decorated with rivers and small water falls. One of our goals will be giving a nice and smooth silky appearance to the water by either using ideally ND filters. Although the look-and-feel of your photos can be tuned in post-processing, remember that everything starts with a good photo. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, this workshop offers enough challenge for everyone. Let the autumn amaze you!

From the assembly point, we will immediately walk together into the forest to get down to work. During the morning, we will visit various photo locations. We will take a lunch break together around 11.45. All photo locations we will visit on this day are easily accessible both by car and on foot.
INTENSIVE ACCOMPANIMENT AND EXTRAS
A small group (up to 6 people) guarantees intensive personal guidance. Moreover, before the start of the workshop please share with me your personal interest in landscape photography to make sure that you receive my best guidance during the workshop.
IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR YOU?
This workshop is suitable for beginners as well as advanced photographers. As the group is small, there is opportunity for explanation and assistance tailored to your level. You certainly do not have to be an expert, but it is important that you have experience in working with apertures and shutter speeds.
