The Overgaard ADVANCED Photography Workshop

"The Overgaard ADVANCED Photography Workshop"

By: Thorsten Overgaard

Often the last comments after a seminar of mine usually is "Let's do this again next year" ... and so this is how we do it:

This is the seminar for those Leica photographers and others who want to take it to the next step after having completed the Overgaard Photo Seminar or the Overgaard Photography Extension Course

On the Overgaard Photo Seminar we spend one full day of shooting, and on the ADVANCED workshop we spend three days of shooting and editing.

Each day we focus on new assignments. The actual assignments will differ depending on locations available but will challenge you and teach you new techniques and better control of camera and light by guided hands-on assignemnts. Some of the subjects we may indulge in will be "Timing in portraitture", "Making available light the best light", "Finding the exact right light", "Working with models and people", "Shooting strangers - and they like it!", "Using reflectors for portraits", "Shooting with film lights" ... and more.

"The set-up you provided was great. Taking pictures of models was new to me and gave me a lot of certaintiy that I can reach results with taking pictures of people as I envision them to be. I have made steady and tangible progress in photography above my expectations thanks to your seminars."

  - M.J., Hamburg  

Anything you want to learn - you just ask! Basic subjects such as focusing with a rangefinder, using DOF, white  balanca and light metering will be basic in all assignments.

As always, the seminar will include visits to interesting locations, some model photography, the best coffee bars and ever exiting cafés/restaurants, with an interesting crowd of likeminded people dedicated to photography.
