The stunning architecture of the ages – Ancient, Renaissance, Baroque, Nouveau, Mod, Contemporary – co-exists in Rome as in no other place in the world.
In this workshop, participants will be photographing sites and structures both known and undiscovered, while learning new techniques for framing and working with the light on inanimate landscapes. Create the “postcard” shots you desire and experience a bit of Rome’s history through the lens.
This workshop focuses on monuments, architecture and urban landscape. If you wish to include some street photography in your tour, please check out our Morning Light workshop.
