What can I expect from this photo tour experience?
It all depends on what you’re looking for when you take photos. It’s a personal experience where I guide you through the process of taking photos. I will inspire and challenge you to take the best photos. If you just want to explore and enjoy the city with your camera, all right!
But we can also dig deeper into the art of photography.
We’ll show you the possibilities by offering you locations and local insights from an insider’s perspective. Some people like to photograph mainly landscapes, buildings or people from a safe distance. That’s fine, of course, but if you try to take some more challenging photos, photography becomes a quest for the perfect moment and now you have the chance to take an unforgettable picture.
Is this photo tour for advanced photographers only?
No, not at all, we are happy if you enjoy the time and can take some nice photos. We would like to take some great pictures of the places we go and the people we meet. My goal is to try to take your photography skills to the next level. This means pushing the boundaries and focusing on what’s going on around you so you can take really special photos.
What equipment should I bring?
At least a camera. For night photography, a light tripod and a cable release or remote control are not absolutely necessary but would be useful for photos with long exposure times. We can provide you with a rental tripod at any time. If you have a polarizer, a flash or ND-filters and you want to learn more about them, take them with you.
Which lens should I bring?
It is difficult for us to suggest which lenses to bring with you, as the answer will vary from photographer to photographer. It depends on the lenses you usually shoot with, what kind of photos you like and how much weight is comfortable for you to carry. For more insight, read our blog.
At the same time, a good smartphone is also suitable to use, we can help you with the composition and suggest some mobile editing tools to make the photos from your iPad or iPhone/smartphone look even better.
Do I need a tripod?
A tripod is recommended for all our night tours. If you don’t have one, or you don’t travel with it, you can rent a Manfrotto BeFree tripod (or similar) from us for a small fee. Then select the tripod at checkout. If you have already booked the tour, you can choose a tripod on the spot. Please note that for logistical reasons we can only rent out one tripod per tour.
What else do I need to bring with me or what do I need to be aware of?
Try not to bring too much stuff, one camera, two-three lenses and a small tripod for night photography. Good walking shoes, a hat or cap, sunscreen, and sunglasses when we go out on a sunny day. That’s all!
