What you'll do
We will meet at Amsterdam Centraal (or Schiphol Airport) train station and we will head together to Keukenhof gardens (entrance ticket included). This trip will take about one hour. During this time, we will learn a bit more about each other and about what do you want to learn during this short photo-course. Once we arrive to Keukenhof, one of the most beautiful gardens in Europe, we will first work on understanding the main principles of your camera so that we can shoot in manual all day long (and later). I will also explain to you concepts such as depth of field (so you can get amazing blurry backgrounds or bokeh), the rule of thirds, natural framings, composition and more... All while you test all these new concepts with your own camera. Later, we will walk around the park, where we will test different compositions and take pictures from unexpected angles. Also, if you are interested and come with someone else, I can show you how to get the best and most original portraits in the beautiful garden that is Keukenhof.
Hello! my name is Jennifer and I have been capturing the world with my camera for most of the last decade. I'm currently based in Amsterdam, and enjoying the nature surrounding the city. I have also been a wedding photographer for a short period of time and I have teaching experience in small groups (and loved it). I will show you photography tips that you will be able to use every time you grab your camera and head to the countryside or the city.
I will bring snacks and fruit to eat during the morning
You will get your own bottle of water
The tickets to Keukenhof are included in the price of the experience
Where you'll be
We will visit the beautiful tulip gardens of Keukenhof (the garden of Europe). More than 7 Million bulbs are planted every year with a different theme in mind. This year is focused on the 70s "Flower Power" (it's the 70th edition). This park is only open a few weeks a year, because of that, this Photo tour is only available from April to May 19th. Also, please consider that not all flowers bloom at the same time!
