Photo-Workshop South Tyrol
The workshop’s leading theme is storytelling through emotions. How can you capture emotions with one image or a reportage and take the viewer on a journey?
From the basics of photography until the master discipline; emotional storytelling, everything is taught in consecutive modules, based on each other and easy to understand. Every morning, there is presentation with a theoretical introduction of a new topic and the participants are given a task for the day. Then, it’s time to explore the stunning mountains outside the doorstep. Who still struggles with the techniques gets one-on- one teaching from Basti and/or our assistant. During the unhurried hikes with great views is much time to play around and discover the landscape with and without camera. After a three-course menu in the evenings and with a glass of red wine or a local beer, the images are reviewed in a familiar atmosphere or there are talks with many tips and tricks to take away.
