Four weeks ago I was teaching in the landscape photography course in Kameraseura. The course was arranged in three parts: 3 hours of theory on Friday evening in Kameraseura premises, 5+ hour photography trip on Saturday, and 6 hours of theory in Kameraseura on Sunday.
I started the course on Friday evening with the presentation about landscape photography equipment (cameras, lenses, tripods and other accessories) and the art of landscape photography (i.e. planning, composition, how to use light, effect of different weather conditions,…). I had also asked course participants to bring two photos with them: one successful landscape photo, and one photo that had failed although the situation was fantastic. I provided feedback what worked and what could have be improved in those photos in my opinion.
On Saturday we made five hour photography trip to Suomenlinna with the target to apply the lessons from Friday. We were extremely lucky with the weather, that Saturday was definitely one of the best landscape photography days during this spring: There was pack ice on the shores and nice clouds in the sky during afternoon. At sunset time we had nice colourful sunset and interesting ice formations on the rocks, they were literally glazed with ice 🙂
