Ian Middleton: Photography - one day Photography Workshops & Courses

one day

easy-moderate

all year

Full day photography workshop focused on photographing distant landscapes

While the majority of landscape photography is done with a wide angle or small focal length, the use of a telephoto lens is often overlooked.

There are certain viewpoints you get of landscapes that you can only get from a distance. On this special telephoto lens landscape photography workshop I will show you, using one of a number of great locations around the Ljubljana airport, just how to spot these and how to utilise a long focal length to create these unique perspectives.

Slovenia’s landscape and its mountains are dotted with churches, so it’s the perfect place for this kind of photography.

Join me for a private 1-1 or group workshop. We’ll visit a variety of locations as examples before choosing one for a sunset shoot, according to the conditions at the time.

what to wear

Depending on the time of year, warm clothes. Ideally layers that can remove or put on as we’ll either be shooting before sunrise or after sunset, in the dark, when it will be colder. In spring the daytime can be very warm, but the temperature can drop quite a bit when the sun goes down. Summers can be quite hot. You may also need a raincoat.
