Austria: 4-day tour for beginner/intermediate photographers

Join Imagine Your World (www.imagine-your-world.com) for a 4-day landscape workshop geared towards beginner to intermediate photographers in Austria’s Salzkammergut. Most new camera owners use very little of the potential of their cameras. This course will enable participants to get into the more creative modes of a camera and understand the basics like metering, focus, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and white balance. The workshop will offer many opportunities to shoot land- and waterscapes and, weather permitting, some sunrise and sunset images.

Beautiful autumn colorsBeautiful autumn colorsBoston Ivy, also known as Japanese Creeper, clings onto nearly every surface and develops beautiful autumn colors. Austria’s Salzkammergut is a resort area stretching from the city of Salzburg eastwards to the peaks of the Dachstein Mountains. The Salzkammergut is not only known for numerous glacial lakes and towering mountain slopes, but culinary specialties such as Kaiserschmarrn and Krapfen.

Surrounded by mountains is the secluded Schwarzensee, a true photographer’s paradise. Occasionally, fog rises from the clear water just after sunrise or sunset. Since the lake is up to 67 meters deep, the water remains refreshingly cool all year long. Just to the north is Lake Attersee, the largest lake of the Salzkammergut area of Austria. It extends for about 20 kilometers from north to south and about 4 kilometers from east to west. The mountains of hell rise to heights of up to 1,800 meters from the southeastern shores of the lake.

This workshop will begin in Strobl, a small tourist town situated on the shores of Lake Wolfgang, one of the best known lakes in the area. Stretching about 10 kilometers, the Wolfgangsee is surrounded by several mountain ranges, most notably the 1783 meter high Schafberg. A rustic restaurant occupies part of its peak, offering breathtaking panoramic views in most directions.

During the workshop, photographers will capture many of the area’s features at the best times of day and practice many hours in the field. When conditions are less perfect, they will have ample opportunities to discuss composition guidelines, lighting, lenses, camera functions, and "must have" accessories.

The class will offer many opportunities to shoot breathtaking landscapes, wildlife, and macro images. Picturesque tows, untamed rivers, wild mountains, and deep lakes wait to be discovered. Our goal is to provide ample opportunities to shoot sunrises and sunsets in challenging lighting conditions, apply graduate, polarizing and 10 stop neutral density filters. We will use bracketing to capture images for later HDR processing. Guidance and hands-on instructions will be available throughout the workshop.
