Hallerbos Forest

Every spring the Hallerbos is dotted with millions of flowers, but it's the colourful carpet of bluebells that is always the most spectacular. An ideal setting for macro and field photography.
 

Workshop details


We meet early in the forest to make sure we will not miss the sunrise and the beautiful morning light. An additional bonus is that the forest will be quiet still, with possible walkers arriving only later in the morning.

Creating atmosphere and original compositions are amongst the goals of this workshop. This is not limited to macro shots of the flowers and possible insects: also capturing the beauty of the forest is a challenge. The participants will get personal tips and assistance to improve their images.

After the workshop the participants will receive extensive feedback on two photos that were made during the course of this morning.

 

Who is the workshop aimed at?

 
  • photographers who already know the basics of photography and are experienced with setting apertures or shutter speeds
  • and who possess a DSLR camera (or a mirrorless system camera) with telelens; a macrolens or equivalent (e.g. also a 50mm lens or a 40-55mm vintage lens with extension tubes are a perfect alternative for a macro lens) are necessary for real macro shots.
  • and who can bring a tripod.

Practical info: 

  • Multiple Exposure is not taught in this workshop. There are other workshops in the program dedicated to this technique.
  • Breakfast or lunch are not included, so bring your own coffee and/or sandwiches.
  • IMPORTANT! The participants will keep both days (these are weekdays!) free - if the weather is bad on day 1, the workshop will be postponed until the bad weather date.
  • As always when you’re photographing in the woods or in the field, you have to take into account that there might be ticks present. More information about ticks and how to protect yourself, you can find here: http://www.livescience.com/46160-how-to-avoid-tick-bites.html
  • No cancellation or other insurance is included in this workshop.
