Right, lets try again to post a “live” trip report from the shooting site – this time from Hole in the Wall in the Eastern Cape.
Today is Day 2 of our photography workshop with Hougaard Malan with the main focus on seascapes. Unfortunately the weather is not playing along – beautiful days for the beach but not for dramatic landscape or seascape photography. Lets hope the weather will improve in the next few days.
Here are a few photos in the mean time from Day 1. A bit different from wildlife photography, in fact – way different from wildlife photography. So I need some time to change my way of thinking about photography. But is so easy with Hougaard around. For those who are not familiar about what I am talking about – you just need to attend one of Hougaard’s workshop and you’ll see. It will make a world of difference to your photography and your portfolio. Give it a try – you won’t be disappointed. I can almost guarantee it. He is so professional and supportive, it is almost unbelievable. He doesn’t even take his camera along on the shoot – it is all about you – he makes sure you get the shot and you understand what you are doing. After the workshop you will feel comfortable taking on landscape photography yourself. Not the same can be said for so many of the so-called photographic workshops. This is my second workshop with Hougaard and surely it won’t be the last.
