Images of France - Photography Unplugged

"Awaken the inner eye...."

Photography Unplugged

The Joy of Photography

To our way of thinking the most enjoyable and magical photographic experience is to take the time to explore a new location through the viewfinder, capturing the endless possibilities of composition, light, texture and form.

Join us as we hunt for the unusual and let your imagination run free. Try out different perspectives and techniques and revel in the delights of mastering your digital camera!

Whatever your skill level and whatever your camera you will be inspired and nourished by the opportunity to get out and about in the beautiful countryside and medieval villages of this region of South West France.

Accompanied by Graham Berry you will be taken on several full day excursions to varying inspirational destinations - spectacular or harmonious, vibrant or subtle, calm or busy - each day will bring different challenges and different moods as you immerse yourself in the enjoyment of capturing the essence of the location.

In Spring when the landscape bursts into life with vibrant colours or in Autumn when the mellow gold and browns may be enveloped in mist, we will visit some historic and beautiful sites and reveal hidden treasures in the details.

On returning to our base you will be able to download and review your images in our digital darkroom where a separate PC is available for each guest, running Adobe Photoshop Elements and Adobe Lightroom. Select your favourites to share with everyone on our final evening slideshow.

Your accommodation will be in our comfortable and well-appointed guest house, adjacent to our farm house where you will have breakfast and dinner prepared by Belinda with the best of local produce. On most days you will have lunch in one of the many inexpensive restaurants that this region is renowned for, enabling you to discover more of the delights of France.

With no formal tutorials, but ample opportunity for discussion and with Graham on hand to turn to for advice as needed, this is the holiday that photographers have asked us for.

Situated in the region of Midi Pyrenees in the department of Lot, there are many diverse sites of interest within easy reach.

Possible locations include for example:

There are so many possibilities!

This holiday is aimed at those who just love to take photos. Whether you have a DSLR or a compact camera you will need to be reasonably confident with your ability to get good exposure as there is no structured tuition. If you need to learn more about controlling your camera then consider joining us on our Level 1 course for Beginners and Improvers where you will learn to live without Auto mode.
