Workshop Itinerary

​​

Day 2 - Villasimius and Ogliastra

We will capture the sunrise in Villasimius, a splendid location filled with historical and natural landmarks. From gorgeous rock formations to ancient Spanish watchtowers, surrounded by crystal clear water and the typical vegetation. So many spots from where capturing amazing photos. We will then move North towards Ogliastra for the sunset and from where we will reach all our next photographic locations and continue to discover the delicious and famous local food.

Day 3-7 Sunrises

Every day we will have the possibility to visit the most fascinating and wonderful photographic spots and capture them under the amazing golden light of the sunrise. We will practice and master composition and shooting techniques, You will be able to create stunning long exposure photos that will give you that smooth and silky water effect that you see in so many professional photos.

Day 3-7 Sunsets

Every evening we will capture the magical sunset light and learn how to master composition and shooting techniques, You will be able to create stunning long exposure photos that will give you that smooth and silky water effect that you see in so many professional photos.

We will visit multiple spots like Orrì, Cea and Torre di Barì.

Aerial Photography sessions with drones

The crystal clear water of Sardinia and the colored rocks and cliffs offer an incredible opportunity for aerial photography. Red, white, gray and black rocky formations create a stunning mix of colors and shapes when they encounter the turquoise water of the Mediterranean. During our Sardinia Photo Tours we will have two dedicated sessions with drones to offer you a direct experience with this new discipline that allows to observe and admire our world from an unusual point of view. So many new possibilities to explore from above :)

Milky Way/Astrophotography sessions

Light pollution in big cities and populated areas doesn't allow to admire the stars like our ancestors were used to. The reason is that we need a perfectly dark sky to be able to see and capture the stars and the Milky Way in all their beauty. Sardinia is a special place for photographers also for this reason. It has one of the clearest and darkest skies in Europe. A perfect excuse to go out and explore the possibilities of Astrophotography and capture the beauty of the cosmo.
