We are delighted to be collaborating with @thephotowalkers Africa’s #photography tour specialists #africa

Looking for your next photography challenge?  How about joining The Photo Walkers on a once in a lifetime experience in Southern Africa – simply sit back and reap the rewards of their team’s many years of experience in the bush and behind the lens.  You can find out about their forthcoming tours to Botswana here.

“I recently had the opportunity to take part in a trial of a photographic skills course as an option on safari in Botswana. Photographing the amazing wildlife and stunning landscapes is central to most safaris, but the current crop of digital cameras in auto mode do it all for you don’t they?  Well think again. Over the course of several days Peter Hassall and Leanne Dryburgh (thephotowalkers.com) with their infectious enthusiasm gave the group a real feeling for how good photography is more than point and shoot. In one-to-one sessions they covered topics such as setting up the camera, interpreting meter readings relative to the quality and intensity of light, composition and framing the picture and, importantly, the advantages of manual control. There was also an opportunity to try out different lenses and even cameras. I found this a really stimulating programme and would recommend this option to anyone with an interest in photography at any level.”  D.W London

Congratulations to Leonardo Schenato Barroso winner of our monthly #photocontest reflections #photography

Leonardo small
ABOUT THE IMAGE:
This photograph was taken in the city of Curitiba, PR, Brazil. The image captured the instant when several urban artistic interventions were reflected on a rain puddle, along with some more elements. What really caught me on this image was, at first, the intense contrast between the outside – shown by the unfinished window cut and its reflect – and the inside, shown in the rest of the scene. I mean: to me, in this image, it really looks like reality became a picture on the wall. After I took it, other thing that called my attention was the difference between the real window, where we can see some buildings, and the reflected window, where we can see the sky. So, it’s a reflection, but it shows a different thing than what it reflects. Ain’t that peculiar? The letters “CWB”, in the title, refer to the IATA Code of Curitiba. The urban interventions registered on the photo were made by Artestenciva, Bruno Romã, Paula Ariana Calory (PAC) and other unidentified artists.
ABOUT ME:
Photography enthusiast born in Curitiba, PR, Brazil, currently living in Irati, PR, Brazil. Grandson of a classic style painter, gets interested in beautiful landscapes since the early years. Started studying the incredible art of photography in 2007, during the Journalism graduation, specially at the Photojournalism classes. Made an internship at the university`s photo lab. After college, diversified his knowledge with courses about different types of photos and started to take part at photographic trips around Brazil. Started photography expositions in 2016, when his picture “The Owl’s Sunrise in Guaratuba Beach” won a photographic competition organized by the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR), and became the cover photo of the “Guaju” magazine, one of the university’s scientific publications.
