one of the most beautiful seasons of the year. A season full with colors and atmosphere
Forest lakes, brooks and little waterfalls
Landscape- and macro photography mix
Abstract photography with Intentional Camera Movement technique
Guided by photographer Kristel Schneider
During the 7 days we will explore this beautiful mysterious forest landscape and visit a couple of lakes in the middle of the forest. We will explore the high Chaumes du Forez with its wetlands and open landscapes. You will discover a beautifull old glacial valley, Vallée du Fossat. We strive to organize at least two photo discussions, focusing on how to create effective compositions (what works what does not) learning to look differently (eye for detail) and depending on the groups experience some basic image processing. The program includes short walks in nature to forests and lakes (depending on the weather conditions) and we will drive higher up in the mountains. This is not just a photo-tour but a workshop with professional guidance, where the group is kept small so that everyone gets personal attention and practical tips in the field.
Home again with the accomplishment of my first photo-tour for Nordic Vision in my backpack!
I can now look back at this very pleasant week and really enjoy my first group who was just great: we had fun and learned a lot from each-other!
As I wanted to give every participant the right amount of time and attention, I didn’t take a lot images myself but I’ve already seen some wonderful pictures they took then.
Thank you everyone for the enthusiastic participation and your good moods during the early morning sessions 😉
The summer tour will be back for sure next year. For new dates and other Auvergne photo-tours in 2016 (Winter & Autumn) keep an eye on the website of Nordic Vision or here on Visions and Nature. I hope to promote the new tours online in a couple of weeks.
