"Milan is a city that we use a lot, but see so little" - Beppe Severgnini
It's true that Milan is the financial heart of Italy, the centre of fashion and design, a posh city with myriad events. It's fast and determined during rush hours. But there are spots in Milan that were made for leisure and people watching, where one can stop and observe. Parco Sempione is where Milan inhabitants go to sit on the grass, stroll, and forget about work. Here you can take your time to pick up new photography knowledge without the hustle and bustle. The Navigli is where you go to sip an aperitivo and play with your camera settings to capture the reflections in the canals.
Milan is as ancient as it is new. The buildings in the Porta Garibaldi area are great for modern architecture pictures, while the Brera and Duomo are the spots for people watching between gothic and neoclassical buildings. Chances are you may get caught up photographing the style and fashion of just about every passerby.
Each tour is crafted to the skills and needs of the participants. Apart from taking photos, you can also expect to learn:
- Creative composition, using lines, repetition, camera angles
- Training your eye: composition, subjects, lighting
- Portraits and how to get the most out of your flash
- Taking control of your camera: f-stop, shutter speed, ISO and focusing
- Reviewing your photography
You won't be on your feet the entire time, we will start off with a real Italian coffee in a typical café to go over your work and level of technical expertise so that our professional photographers can craft the perfect tour, suited directly to your skill set. If you have any particular location you want to shoot, just let us know and we will work it into the itinerary.
Each tour is private, but feel free to bring along guests, such as other photographer friends or your partner and family, but we ask you to limit the group to four people. This way we can work at your pace to make sure you take away the skills that last a lifetime.
