In October I invite you to join me in my forests, to photograph the colors of autumn at their best. We’ll be photographing my favorite places in forests and mountain lakes. The workshop will include editing sessions oriented toward forest photography editing. We’ll discuss how you approach composition in the forest, how do you find interesting subjects, focus, settings and using different lenses to capture the beauty of the landscape in the best month to be a landscape photographer.

Each day we’ll photograph during sunrise inside the forest or on the shore of a lake. We’ll stay on that location through the entire morning to benefit from the best light. We’ll take breakfast right there on location. After that you’ll have a short brake or will go to my studio to edit photos and discuss your compositions. After that we leave for the afternoon and sunset photo session. When we return we’ll go and have supper at a restaurant.

To participate to this photo tour you have to be over 18 years old and to be physically fit to hike in the mountains. The hikes are of medium difficulty: nothing technical, nothing dangerous but you need to know what it means to hike on the mountain.

To enroll for this photo tour you can send me an email at tb@tomabonciu.ro with the subject “Autumn Forests Photo Tour 2020“.

The price doesn’t include
- transportation to the hotel and in the area. You’ll have to rent a car and arrive at the hotel. We meet at the hotel (I can talk to other members of the group if you want to share a car from the airport)
- other meals and souvenirs (although I think I’ve included enough food in the price, so I don’t think you’ll need some more)

Payment is made through Paypal or direct bank transfer. You don’t need a Paypal account to pay. The fee of Paypal is 3.5% and will be added to the amount you pay. You can also pay in a UK based EURO account and you’ll have to pay transfer taxes.

I like to try different things and experimenting with new lenses is one of these things. I’m usually photographing with 17-40mm and using the 50mm lens is not the first thing a landscape photographer will think of using.
