VALENCIA IN SPAIN - Highlights of Architecture - A Photographic Workshop
Founded by the Romans 2000 years ago, Valencia provides many historical monuments and spectacular photographic motifs – palaces and city gates, a silk merchants’ market of the Middle Ages, a principal market and railway station housed in handsome art-nouveau buildings and a mixture of historical and strikingly new bridges as well as a futuristic cultural complex. After a disastrous flood in 1957, the decision was taken to divert the river Turia along an artificial channel around the outer suburbs and turn it into a ribbon of parks, sports fields and an area of five stunning, futuristic buildings dedicated to the Arts and Sciences, four of them by the Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava. For mayor Barberá the complex is 'the symbol of 21st century' and for the architect himself the imposing structures have a double function 'to change the city and form a unified whole again'. His 'jewels of architecture' invite photographers all over the world to visit and take most exceptional pictures.
This 'photographic time travel' is offered for amateurs of photography by the German operator 'click fototours', Bonn/Germany, from 17th-21st June, 2011. Accompanied by two lecturers, photographic questions will be answered during the workshop, professional advice provided for day and night shots and tips given for optimal shooting results.
The workshop ist meant for beginners as well as for advanced photographic amateurs and is considered to be a course ‘on site' in terms of 'learning by doing'. For a small group (six to ten persons), the following topics are dealt with
- light metering
- use of various focal lenses
- use of depth of field
- image structure and colour design
- night images
Images will be selected and realized according to photographic aspects only,
e.g. not shootings of sights at any rate or at a quick pace.
The workshop includes the flight from a German airport, hotel accomodation with breakfast and workshop fee. Attendance of workshop without flight or accommodation is possible and on request.

It's the ambition of ‘click fototours’, Bonn/Germany, to teach their participants an individual image structure which will be analysed and realized under professional photographic assistance. Workshops are equally suitable for beginners who want to get to know their camera better and for advanced amateurs of photography who wish to extend their photographic know-how.
In a small group (six to ten persons) they will be attended intensively, will exchange their photographic experiences with eachother and share their enjoyment in photography.
All tours are offered in German and with an English speaking assistant.
