Val d’Orcia between myth and beauty (May 12th/13th)

Photoexperience invites you to be part of a weekend in discovering some of the most beautiful landscapes in Tuscany.
On the 2nd-3rd July weekend, Val d’Orcia will be the destination of this meeting, dedicated to people fond of photography who are going to join us to explore with a creative look the most suggestive places of this charming land.

Visiting and using, for our photographic sessions, some of the places famous for being filmed in great movies, will be the peculiar and exclusive characteristic of this workshop. Among these corners of beauty you will be able to recognize places seen in movies like “The Gladiator” or “The English Patient”.

Pienza will be our starting point. We are going to plunge into the beauty of the landscapes to catch the shots and to breathe the emotions of renowned movies filmed in the countryside nearby. It will be fun to try to recreate the same shots seen in the movies and to live, with our staff, an exciting and creative experience.
You will be given by our staff some good pieces of advice.

The workshop has been set-up to let all the partecipants live an interesting photographic experience indipendently of their skill since the group will be accompanied by two Photoexperience’s members. One dedicated to those who are beginning to take photos and the other one for the more experienced photographers.
