Distant Perspectives in Slovenia- Churches and Mountains Workshop         BOOK NOW

Full or half day photography workshop focused on photographing distant landscapes

While the majority of landscape photography is done with a wide angle or small focal length, the use of a telephoto lens is often overlooked. There are certain viewpoints you get of landscapes that you can only get from a distance. On this workshop I will show you, using a number of great locations around the Ljubljana airport, just how to spot these and how to utilise a long focal length to create these unique perspectives.

Slovenia's landscape and mountains is dotted with churches, so it's the perfect place for this kind of photography.

Join me for a private 1-1 or group workshop. We'll visit a variety of locations as examples before choosing one for a sunset shoot, according to the conditions at the time.

Standard Workshops suitable for: an SLR is essential for this workshop, along with a long zoom or telephoto of 300mm or higher.

Detailed handout: I know how hard it can be to try and scribble down notes at any kind of lesson or workshop, and so to this end I have created a detailed handout that covers everything, so you don't have to make any notes. You will use this on the day, plus it's especially useful to refer back to in the future when you go out on your own.

Lindsey B "I think the "handout" Ian gave us was worth the cost of the workshop in itself. It's really more like a book and probably has everything I need to know with photo examples. But also Ian was a great teacher and explained things very clearly and in a way that was easy to understand by using examples. Even with the heat and hazy sky I ended up with a few nice photos of Lake Bled using the techniques that Ian taught us. Can't wait for my next trip to try some things out. I have much more confidence now!"

Getting there: Transportation from Ljubljana can be provided for up to 3 people. Or you can drive yourself if you prefer.
