Portugal - Lisbon 3 Day Workshop - June 2020

Guincho sunset

A stunning 3 day spring photography workshop in the spectacular Sintra region of Portugal near to Lisbon with overnight single occupancy accommodation at a local hotel in the centre of the region. 

Duncan will choose the locations for the group to visit and photograph depending on weather and tide conditions close to the day but these can include: Praia da Adraga, Praia da Ursa, Cabo da Roca and many other little known and often secret locations in the area as well as the stunning Vasco Da Gama bridge.  Each location is magnificent and a great opportunity to photograph the wild western Portuguese coast and experience the delights of Portuguese culture in and around Lisbon.  The actual agenda for the days will remain flexible so as to best capture the locations in the best lighting conditions.

A small group of 4 participants will be guided by Duncan on the workshop.  Duncan's approach is more intuitive and creative than technical but covers all aspects including:

1 - choosing locations based on tide, sun and weather conditions

2 - equipment choices

3 - capturing / creating the mood of the location

4 - creating the right composition

5 - getting the right exposure such as shutter speeds, aperture ISO to capture the scene

6 - use of ND (Neutral Density) filters

This workshop will start before sunrise and finish after sunset each day so would involve long days on location.  Therefore appropriate clothing (and spare dry clothing) and footwear is strongly recommended. Opportunities will exist to get refreshments during each day.
