The Alsace: 4-day workshop for beginner/intermediate photographers in France

The workshop will offer many opportunities to shoot landscapes and urban images.

Historical gems in the Alsace (I)Historical gems in the Alsace (I)Barr is a picturesque small town in the Bas-Rhin department in Alsace in northeastern France. Located on France's eastern border with Germany, the Alsace is famous for its picturesque villages, churches and castles. Historic towns like Colmar, Ammerschwihr, Barr, Kaysersberg, Kienzheim, Niedermorschwihr, Riquewihr and Turkheim line up on or near the Alsatian Wine Route, reminding visitors of fairy tales told decades ago.

The town squares, cobble stone streets and houses found in the cities offer a truly unique chance to capture a remarkable architecture dating back centuries and indulge in culinary delights not offered anywhere else on earth. Vineyards, some founded during the Romans Empire, continue to produce some of the most noted dry Rieslings and aromatic Gewürztraminers in the world, along with excellent Pinot Noirs.

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.
