Crimea. 16-26.10.2020

 

Light and Mist. Photography workshop in Crimea.

Why did we choose Crimea? Here we can find an endless variety of landscapes - from the sea coast to mountain chains. Natural beech forests are covered with crimson autumn colours, and autumn night fogs rising from the still warm sea will let us practice shooting "air pics" of different density and transparency, which gives us a unique opportunity to show the volume and completeness of the image.
 
Are you still thinking? Then watch our video "Crimea. Light and Mist". Do you want to visit this place and to see it by your own eyes? We are waiting for you!
 
 

 

Among other things, we have a lot of extra options so that you do not get bored by pure theory and photography, for example:
- wine cellars of the New World and visiting a wine boutique in Balaklava;
- visiting an oyster farm and tasting the freshest oysters in Katsiveli;
- a boat trip and fishing in the sea in Balaklava with lunch on board the ship;
- traditional Tatar cuisine in the best cafes of Crimea and swimming on the Royal Beach;
- and much, much more.
