Word of Mouth: Travel Photography in Tuscany with Howard Millard
Take a great professional photographer, add the backdrop of Tuscany, and you have the makings of a great learning getaway. My colleague Howard Millard is offering his "Travel Photography in the Digital Age" workshop in the rolling hills of Tuscany from May 10 to 17, 2008. You’ll stay at a country villa nestled among vineyards and olive groves and you’ll have a chance to photograph those memorable Tuscan landscapes, venerable hill towns and outdoor markets. You’ll also get a chance to photograph the medieval cities of Florence and Siena, learning techniques to make stunning images for personal, editorial and fine art use. Covering both digital and film, Howard gives personal, hands-on instruction and reviews your work to help refine your personal vision and maximize your photographic and digital skills. Topics include photographing people, architecture, the natural world, nurturing a personal style, natural and artificial light, equipment, and working with Photoshop. Millard’s work has been published internationally by clients including Travel and Leisure, The New York Times, Abrams and Rizzoli. The $1,695 course fee includes lodging, instruction and many magnificent meals.
