Do you ever wonder why your photos of Germany don’t look like the brochures? Do you wish they did? You don’t need to buy thousands of dollars of new camera equipment to take better travel photos, you just need to learn a few basic tips and learn how to avoid a few common mistakes.  Whether you are using an expensive digital camera, a pocket camera, a tablet, or your phone, you can learn to take those “wow” photographs your friends will envy in our new beginner class and photo walk.  No children under 12 permitted and participants under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

During the 2-hour classroom session, our instructor will cover the fundamentals of composition, shooting angles, and framing your shots; and will teach you how they apply to the typical photo opportunities that surround us here in Germany and the rest of Europe - the landscapes, street scenes, cathedrals, villages, architecture, Christmas markets, nature trails, festivals, mountains, flowers, people - even the food!   A few days later, after the classroom work, our instructor will take you on a guided photo-walk where you can put what you have learned into practice.  Just bring your camera or device and a desire to have fun - we have the rest covered.
