Join Tatra Photography in the historical capital of Bohemia, Prague is the capital and largest city in The Czech Republic steeped in history and one of the most magical places to photograph in the world. The city straddles the River Vltava the longest in the Czech Republic flowing 270 miles. The city famed for its ancient architectural landmarks, cobbled streets and towers. We will include all the famous landmarks including Prague Castle, St Vitus Cathedral, the Astronomical Clock, the jewish cemetery and the iconic Charles Bridge & Mala Strana.
We will have plenty of time with sunrise, sunset and the blue hour to really explore this diverse city with our cameras. We will seek out interesting nooks and crannies as well as the better-known and more iconic sites around the city and really concentrate on looking upwards as well as at eye level. Our aims will be to give you ample opportunity to really capture the history of this amazing city with its myriad architectural opportunities and help you get to grips with urban photography – and what a location in which to learn!
As well as having extended and flexible time in Prague, where we will work one-on-one with each guest to hone your Urban photography skills, we will also provide demonstrations of advanced cityscape photography techniques, such as High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) and night photography.
We also encourage participants to bring a selection of their work for a review and critique, our professional tutor will discuss the art of urban photography composition, how to use the camera to create wow-factor images and how to approach photography with the eye of a pro.
