Our photography tour takes you to popular rolling fields of south Moravia in Czech Republic. It offers a good opportunity to photograph the local agriculture landscape full of lines and shapes that looks like Tuscany in Italy or Palouse in Washington state, United States. Best time to visit is in spring and autumn.
You will have a professional landscape photographer Jan Miřacký with you who knows the best locations and will help you to get the most out of your trip. You will practice capturing abstract landscape photos and look for various lines in nature. We will focus mainly on composition and we will take advantage of a good light during sunrise and sunset.
The most important photography gear to bring is a telephoto lens with a focal length at least 200 mm (on full frame camera 300 mm would be recommended, otherwise you will have to crop) and a sturdy tripod.
I will pick you up at your hotel by taxi and take you to a car parked outside of the city center. Then we will embark on a 3-4 hours journey to Moravia.
Upon arrival we will accommodate us at a guesthouse and head out for sunset shooting. After sunset we slowly get back to the guesthouse and we can get into post-processing session while tasting some fine Moravian wine. If you would be interested, I can show you how to get the most out of your pictures using Adobe Lightroom.
In the morning we will get up early and leave by car about 30 minutes before sunrise. We will shoot in the soft morning light for about 2,5 hours. We will get back to guest house, have a breakfast, pack our belongings and start a return journey back to Prague.
We will use a car as a mean of transportation from Prague to Moravia and on the locations. Hence the availability is limited to 3-4 participants.
We recommend staying at a very nice and clean guesthouse named U Tří růží in Vrbice some 20 minutes drive from most of the shooting locations. The guesthouse offers a breakfast. Accommodation is not included in the price and will be paid separetely.
