FEATURED PHOTO TOUR

STRANDEN, ZEELANDBRUG, VUURTORENS - SEPTEMBER 2022

Zeeland Fotoweekend


Blote voeten in het zand, camera in je hand en volop genieten! Tijdens dit fotoweekend in Zeeland draait alles om het prachtige Zeeuwse licht. We gaan op zoek naar de mooiste plekken van deze bijzondere provincie.

We fotograferen o.a. de Zeelandbrug, de stormvloedkering, palenrijen op de stranden van Walcheren en Schouwen Duivenland, vuurtorens en de Zeeuwse natuur. Hier gaan we aan de slag met onder andere lange sluitertijden (met of zonder filters). Hierdoor gaan we artistieke en bijzondere foto’s maken.  

 
DFW, DWINGELDERVELD & HOLTINGERVELD - AUGUSTUS

Drenthe Fotoweekend


Tussen de laaghangende mistflarden ligt de bloeiende heide als een mysterieuze paarse deken over de velden. We gaan tijdens dit fotoweekend in Drenthe dan ook vroeg op pad om dit spektakel in het gouden licht van de zonsopkomst vast te leggen.

We fotograferen in het Drents-Friese Wold, de schitterende zandverstuivingen van het Aekingerzand, het Dwingelderveld en tussen de eenzame bomen op het Doldersummerveld.
