Moravia is a rural region of the Czech Republic famed for its rolling arable fields dotted with isolated trees, barns and windmills. During this landscape photography workshop we will explore the region with the help of my friend Arek, who has visited and photographed here for many years. October is one of the best times for photography, as many of the trees should be showing autumn colour. The fields will also be ploughed at this time, revealing many different tones and patterns in the soil. There is also an increased chance of morning mist and the possibility of capturing tractors and other farm machinery working in the fields. We will also visit an area of vineyards where the autumn colour should be at its height. This workshop is very much about long lens landscape photography. In fact the most used focal lengths tend to be in the region of 100mm to 800mm! If you don’t own a big telephoto lens then a 2X extender can help you achieve the necessary magnification. Arek often uses a 2X extender on his 100-400mm lens with great success! We will both be there to help you to find distant views within the landscape, as you’ll need to develop an eye for spotting these rather unconventional compositions.
