Photography Travel Tours
Croatia  – Pearl of the Adriatic Tour  |  June 2 – June 11, 2014


Explore and photograph the breathtaking diversity of Croatia – the gleaming white marble and red tiled roofs of Dubrovnik (the Pearl of the Adriatic), the iconic Old Bridge in Mostar (during a short side trip to Herzegovina), the spectacular natural wonders of the cascading waterfalls and lakes of the Plitvice Lakes National Park and the striking Venetian-influenced medieval hill towns of the Istrian Peninsula.

This tour will include daily “in-the-field” teaching  as well as class room modules and time set aside for photo sharing opportunities.

Some of the locations on this tour lend themselves for shooting at the magical “blue hour,” a short window of opportunity just after sunset and before sunrise when the sky turns into a rich velvety blue.

Shooting the magnificent waterfalls in Plitvice will help everybody to befriend their shutter speed and tripod in order to be able to capture the silkiness of moving water.

In addition to great photography opportunities we will have time for photo sharing and critiques. We will also be lecturing on photographic topics including:

  • Composition
  • Digital Workflow
  • HDR Photography
  • Panoramic Photography
  • Depth of Field calculation
  • Focal Blending
  • Blue Hour Photography
  • Filters, Neutral Density and Neutral Density Grads
  • Photoshop Tips and Tricks
  • Nik software
