Photography tours & workshops 2010, 2011 Yemen & Socotra

Yemen. Socotra. Photo Yuri Afanasiev

First, Yemen is an exotic and hospitable country. Second, it is the Socotra Island that takes 90% of the photo-tour time. Socotra is an island located in the basin of the Indian Ocean in latitude 12 grad north. It is more than 200 km far away from the nearest mainland.

The island’s unearthly landscapes are famous for dragon and bottle trees. Third of 900 species of plants growing on Socotra are endemics. In prehistoric times the Haggeher mountain peaks rising above the central part of the island were not inundated during fluctuations of the World Ocean level. It is proved that they are the most ancient parts of the Earth’s land surface.

It is a great piece of luck to appear in this wildlife preservation with a highly professional photographer and like-minded photo-lovers.

You will be absorbed in photography for ten days. So, you will take part in discussion and analyses of the recent pictures, individual consultations and joint photographing of such genres as landscape, reportage, portrait, travel-photography, panoramic photography and city pictures (Sanaa). 

You will get to know:

  • How to choose the right shooting light & angle;
  • How to use transient lightning between night & morning  and evening & night hours for taking pictures;
  • Which of camera lens is preferable for each genre of photographing.

All the participants of the photo-tour will be able to see how to make an advertising poster and create pictures for Travel Photo Banks. The Master will show you how to change the mood of the same photo with the use of various lighting and camera lens.

Special Program!
