Introduction to Photography Workshop Guatemala

This photography workshop in Guatemala is structured to understand better the languages of photography. Also, is directed to everybody who want to learn the storytelling techniques through images. In fact, I hope to give you some medium to understand the requirements that a photograph must have to document an event or a situation. So, the general program includes theoretical lessons and practical guided with some shooting exercises.

During the workshop the participants will be able to develop their own project led by the teacher. Therefore, each participant, in order to carry out his story, will have the opportunity to submit to the teacher a selection of his own shots taken during the day in order to select the best ones and carry out the editing of his report. At the end, we selected 10/20 images with consistent and organic editing for your project.

In this week we pass four days at the lake Atitlan and the rest of the week we will move to Antigua, a colonial small city perfect for exploring and shooting.
