Winter Seascape Masterclass
 8 TO 9 November   2024

The Mission

 If you love wild beaches, those full of wooden logs, scattered everywhere   that look like marine animals belonged to a prehistoric era, if you love the
scent of the sea, fiery sunsets and the dawns of a thousand colors, the tranquillity of a winter beach where you can slow down the pace of life
and be able to reflect and take long exposure  photographs til the sea looks like silk , then this workshop is for you !
The mission is to use different photographic techniques, from the panoramic shots to the use of the extreme wide angle , using neutral density filters to create effects by playing with lights and the water of the sea transforming all
 in  a very ethereal way.
We will do this in  2 unpublished  days   on 23 and 24 February  2024 on the

 beautiful beaches of Maremma in Tuscany accompanied by Gianluca Federighi which may guide you in this photographic  experience !
You don't need anything else , a solid tripod , your camera and your GND filters, I wait for you!

This  Masterclass is supported by the ALPA Academy and will educate and inspire to use their equipment to became better seers of the world through the lens of an ALPA camera, but remember you do not need to have any medium format equipment, you can attend with your private photographic gear ."The ALPA Academy offers a program of masterclasses delivered by group of selected ALPA Ambassadors who in turns are well recognized in their particular genre.The classes are dedicated to landscape, architecture ,arts and portraiture and are delivered in nature ,or elsewhere and meet highest standards reflecting the design and manufacturing quality of ALPA equipment.
Masterclasses with a small number of participants shall be enriching for each photographer .
Although they feature technical education , Its main dedication is to creativity ,process, observation ,mindset, planning  and to post production" Are the inspiring words of Hans Keist the owner and CEO of ALPA of Switzerland.
there are 6 spot available because we prefer working with small groups and we 'll share our approach to photography and the use of neutral density filter and how to shoot panoramic images.
