High Altitude Landscapes

Photo workshops

Landscapes are an essential part of mountain photography. Peaks, lakes, ridges and sunsets that will always best illustrate your outings at altitude.
Yet, if it is the most common, landscape photography can often be improved with a few basic rules and very simple knowledge. The Alpine photographers will also give you their personal tips and tricks to bring back the most beautiful mountain landscapes in photos and dare to be original.

Description

Head for the Aiguille du Midi and its exceptional Alpine panorama. From the top of its 3,842m, its terraces offer a 360° view of the French, Swiss and Italian Alps.

Learnings

IIn this course, you will learn how to adjust your camera (or your smartphone!) according to the scene, the light and the angle of view chosen. You will discover the rules of panoramic framing. You will also be able to anticipate a possible collage of several shots in post-production (on the computer). If you have several lenses, you will understand which focal length is the most suitable for the landscape. You will also see the advantages of using a tripod.  Finally, the Alpine photographers will explain how the choice of schedule has an essential influence on the rendering of your photo.
