Navarre – a region of diversity. Within its borders we can encounter deep green forests, rocky mountains, vineyards, sweet cherry orchards or a desert!
This weekend photography course will take you to the central part, where olive and almond trees grow. Max group size is 8. This gives us a possibility to stop if there is an urgent need to take a shot of a perfect cloud passing over an amazing landscape. It’s a Mediterranean one, dry and sunny, with green and grey plants growing from a yellow or reddish soil.
The tutor for this course is Magdalena Mlotek, a photographer and a ceramist who has been giving classes and holding workshops over the last 10 years. You will spend three mornings on photography sessions and two evenings on introduction to Photoshop. Enjoy!
