Reviews for Katrin
Perfect trip to know more about photography and Berlin ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I went for the 3h Berlin Photography Walking Tour with Katrin. Because of my itinerary, we had to schedule the trip to start at a later time. The arrangement was easy and straight forward. Katrin is very knowledgeable and friendly. I have some experience with photography but would like to explore more. She taught me how to make pictures that tell a story, how to play with the lights, and include subject into the frame. She also shared with me a side of Berlin that a tourist will never know. All in all, I'd highly recommend Katrin and Aperture tour.
Pair of Aces ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This was our second Aperture experience following Amsterdam last week and we drew another Ace. Katrin was outstanding. Friendly, fun and a great teacher for us to keep improving our photography skills. Great customer experiences can be a rare thing, but Aperture proved to us, it’s a habit for them. Shame there Business has not expanded to the destinations on the rest of our holiday, but we will use them again when we get back to Melbourne and see our Home town in a different light.
A must do experience ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
My experience with Katrin from Aperture was very enjoyable and well worth the money. Straight away she was a very genuine and likeable person, who took her time to explain everything thoroughly and in Simple terms (perfect for those of us who don’t understand a technical-term-written manual), showing you settings on your camera that you may not know how to work. For me it was using the manual settings for depth and blurring.
We walked around some Berlin sights such as the Jewish memorial, this also gave me time to play with what I learned. Katrin showed me how to improve and play around with the camera to create fun picture - outcomes that I may not otherwise have experimented with. Overall, I would certainly recommend katrin if you are looking to improve on any of your photographic skills, she is very easy to get along with,patient and not only that- but you get the bonus of a local who can talk about the beautiful history of the area you’re in at the same time!
