5 DAYS TO BRING THE MAGIC BACK TO YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY

 

5 days, 5 amazing facilitators, magical locations and a wonderful studio in the middle of 16 hectares of forest in one of the most beatiful parts of Sweden.

Did you start taking pictures because it was fun for you? Because there was something magical about capturing the beauty you saw? Have you somewhere along the way forgot about that magic? Would you like to bring it back? This Masterclass is designed to break you out of the box and into the joy and magic that photography actually is.

You will get to play, be inspired, learn the rules and then break them. You will produce, take and retouch your own pictures. We will have professional models, hair & makeup, styling and amazing indoor and outdoor locations. You will during 5 days be facilitated by a group of creative, experienced people with a passion and love for photography, lighting & retouching.

Schedule:

First day with Andrea, Amanda & Viktor - Explore your creativity and get familiar with the basics of lighting in a way that will establish the fundamentals while thinking both technically and creatively. This first day will also be dedicated to opening up your creativity like never before. This first day will be a mixture of what you know as a seminar and a workshop, where your facilitators will be talking about creativity and invite you to ask questions, and as well as Andres taking pictures of a model to demonstrate certain techniques, some of the participants will also be called on stage to take pictures as well as take part in techniques on how to interact with the model.

Second day with Bella & Andrea - Shooting in seperate groups. You get to choose what to shoot and who to have as a coach. Bella will mainly be shooting on location in our beautiful forests as well as shooting in the studio, creating her fairytale magic and showing you how to create it. Andrea will mainly be shooting in the studio, but also outdoors, and he will be coaching you on shooting high end fashion and beauty photography.
In the middle, we'll switch groups to ensure everyone gets a chance to work with both coaches. 

Third day with Pratik - The day will be all about retouching, where we take the images taken from the first couple of days, and really get into the post processing with a high-end workflow. You'll be able to follow along as we finalize the images in a way that will bring out your vision. We'll cover everything from raw processing all the way through to color toning an image and everything in between.

Fourth day - Creating your own magic. You will be invited to explore and create your own images with the tools you have received in the first two days, supported by a team as well as by your coaches.

Fifth day - Rounding out the retreat, this will be an open day with Q&A to ensure everything while everything is still fresh in mind. We'll fill in any loose gaps to ensure you're empowered to go out and create in a way that will expand your creativity.
