Auvergnes flora photography workshop

2018: May, June, July
A macro & close-up photography workshop
with photographer Kristel Schneider

During this photo workshop you will learn to capture the local wild flora in a way that will rise above the standard snapshot images.  By looking at color contrast,  learn to create atmosphere in a composition, focus on details and work with different depth of field. For those who like to create more creative compositions we can look at different photography techniques and methods. The Auvergne is a paradise for wild flowers, from hillside meadows to mountain fields covered with colors. We will explore some local wetlands with rare carnivora plants and different types of cotton-grass,  not to forget the many wild Orchid species that grow in the region.
