Have you ever regret of taking bad photos of your trips? Do you get muddled trying to shoot in manual with your camera? Well.., don´t worry, you are not the only one!

We have a charming team of professional photographers who do their best in order to teach you all you need to know about your camera and get a professional album of Seville made by you. Would you like to know the tips you will learn in our Photography Workshops? Have a look!
DOMINATE THE LIGHT WITH THE APERTURE
Did you know that light is the most important element in Photography? In order to adjust the amount of light that we want we have the f-stops, which are measurements that we will use to open or close the aperture of the lens. The higher the f-stop is the closer the aperture is, and the lower the f-stop is the opener the aperture is, so keep this in mind before you take your photo. Note that the most reliable f-stops to avoid color aberrations are between 5.6 and 11 so be careful using extreme f-stops as 1.4 and 22.
CREATE AMAZING BACKGROUNDS WITH THE DEPHT OF FIELD
Do you like those photos where the person is clearly sharp and the background is blurry? This technique is known as depth of field and is frequently used in portraits. In order to get a photo with few depth of field you need to play with 3 important functions: aperture, focal length, and the distance between the subject and you. The perfect combination is to set a big aperture (f-stop low), use the tele (long focal lentgh) and keeping a long distance between you and the subject. With this combination you will get a short depth of field, which is the way to get a beautiful portrait with the person standing out.
IMPROVE YOUR TECHNIQUE FOR THE PERFECT COMPOSITION
In our Photography Workshops you will learn some of the most useful techniques to compose your photos that will help you in the future. Among them we will teach you a technique used for many professional photographers, the famous rule of thirds, very important to highlight specific elements of the photo as a look of a person. We will take you to emblematic spots as Maria Luisa Park and Plaza España, where you could practice your composition with its architectural elements by playing with the repetition and symmetry.
CREATE ARTISTIC PHOTOS BY LIGHT PAINTING!
We try to finish our Photography Workshops when the sun goes down in order to show you the power that light has at night by using a technique that everyone love, light painting!
To get this way of photo we need to set our shutter speed in long exposure and use a tripod.
Once the photo starts to capture the image we will start moving a light in front of the camera. When the photo is captured, we will just see the trail that the light has left behind, creating an attractive photo for the eyes.
