You are welcome to arrive at the Hotel from 3pm to settle in – we will be there to meet you.
Complimentary Drinks will be served at the Hotel at 7pm and then you can either join Chris for dinner or have some time to yourself.
Monday sunrise to Thursday at noon.
Sunrise is at around 07:35 each morning.
Your day will begin at around 06:30 as we leave the Hotel for the sunrise shoot - locations will vary and may involve a quick Vaporetto ride.
We head back to the Hotel after shooting the golden hour (or so), for breakfast.
The period between the sunrise and sunset shoots is broken up into small processing sessions and the opportunity to explore the real Venice, as we go off the beaten track to shoot the canals & historic buildings:
- Chris will run a couple of 45/60 minute seminars on post-production workflow and techniques, back at the Hotel looking at Lightroom. The timing of this will be confirmed on the day as it may depend on conditions – if the light is good, we shoot! You might choose to pick up a panini in a local café to eat during the seminars.
- Chris will also run a critique session at the end of each day, normally before dinner. This will feature the Photographer’s own work and Chris will give constructive feedback on the chosen images from each day.
- Other field sessions with Chris will be available during each day. The emphasis of the course will be on taking photographs and having a great time away with your camera!
- If you wish to have your shots critiqued in the evening, please bring your images either on a USB stick, or your ipad/laptop (there is no need to bring your own laptop unless you want to process images as you go). The shot can be straight from your camera or one that you have processed. We limit the critique sessions to two or three shots per day, per Photographer, to ensure that the discussions are useful. You may choose to submit a shot you are particularly happy with, or one that you would like help to improve.
Sunset is at around 16:30 each day.
After a short break to give you a little down time to chill out or catch up on personal matters, we head off to our chosen location at around 15:00, to set up and discuss the possibilities.
Your shooting day will end at around 18:00, as we will shoot beyond sunset into the exciting 'blue hour'.
Critique sessions will be held back at the Hotel at around 6.30pm and should last 45 minutes. After that, dinner is up to you - you might choose to join us at a local restaurant to continue the discussion, or to head out individually to explore a little more. We will look to have dinner at around 8pm.
The Workshop ends at noon on the Thursday
