At the edge of the world lays an isolated and unique destination, a dreamy place made of dramatic cliffs, lush green valleys and colorful villages. This one of a kind Faroe Islands Photo Tour is the perfect way to capture those amazing landscapes. The highly changeable weather in this part of the world only adds more charm to what is already an unbelievable place and makes it the perfect destination for a photography adventure.
During this Faroe Islands photography workshop we will visit some of the more iconic locations such as Gásadalur, Mykines, Saksun, Kalsoy along with other secret locations. Chances to photograph the puffins will be high as well.
We are the first and only tour sailing out to the incredible island of Tindholmur! We will head out to this spot to capture some unique landscape photography, with many different options for compositions.
We’ll be very active shooting all day long, especially at sunrise, sunset and during the night if conditions allow us. This 7-days itinerary will give us plenty of time to capture many locations and come back with some awesome images.
WHAT TO BRING
Your Camera. You can choose to use any camera you like, but a digital camera with full manual control and interchangeable lenses is highly recommended in order for you to have the best experience.
Lenses. There are opportunities to use any and all focal lengths, so bring a good range of them.
Tripod. A tripod is essential for low-light stills and landscape photography.
Filters. Polarizing or neutral density filters can be very useful, but it is possible to get great results without them.
Other gear. Several batteries, plenty of memory, a remote trigger, lens cleaning supplies.
(Optional) Laptop. If you would like to follow along or take notes during the processing sessions, then you may want to have your laptop with you. The software applications that we will emphasize include Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop
Clothing & shoes. Weather conditions in the Faroe Islands can be quite cold. Bring insulating layers: good set of base layers, layers for warmth such as fleece and down. A shell jacket and hiking pants will help to protect against the elements as well. Good hiking boots or shoes are advised along with a warm hat and gloves.
Willingness to learn and discover.
