TravelLIGHT are delighted to announce our second Immersive Photography Workshop: Secret Venice – City of Light, taking place in October 2019.
Venice is a living, breathing work of art floating on the sea. Despite its reputation as a theme-park city, around its narrow waterways and ancient buildings remain secret hideaways and a way of life one might think had disappeared long ago. To truly “see” Venice, you must immerse yourself in living community she is, observantly explore its abundant visual history, seeking its charms that are hidden in plain sight and which will be revealed only to you.
During this immersive workshop we will explore Venice’s photographic history, visit its modern day artisans, and look at what the future holds in store for this inspiring but threatened city.
In collaboration with two Venetian residents, the guide/art historian Dr. Christina Gregorin and the painter/sculptor Monica Martin we will discover how Venice is reinventing itself for the 21st century without loosing its unique heritage.
This workshop is a (truly) unique experience where we take you on a creative journey and challenge you, photographically, like you’ve never been challenged before.
Photography is visual storytelling and, on this comprehensive, culture-rich workshop in Venice, we show you, using a tried-and-tested three-step plan, how to harness what we like to call the final 2%. In Step 1, we immerse you in the subject. In Step 2, we focus your vision on the narrative, getting you to express yourself through the camera. Lastly, in Step 3 we teach you the language of composition and show you how to make images that go beyond postcard shots to tell a compelling visual story.
Whatever your level of experience and your preferred style, by the end of the journey we guarantee to have changed the way you think about photography so you can change the way you photograph.
