PODAS workshops have a goal to deliver the best educational experiences possible. You will be kept busy from the first day up until you return to the airport. First and foremost you’ll learn the fundamentals of medium format camera use and especially the use of Phase One cameras and digital backs. Instructors will help you learn to see the shot and how to accomplish the best image capture possible. In addition you will learn digital workflow using Capture One from import to output. In addition once you have the show we will spend time learning what to do with it. How to print the image, publish it on the web, presenting the image in self publishing of books, albums and display methods including mounting and framing.

Each day you will experience photographic excursions starting with sunrise and ending with sunset. During the day and evening there will be presentations by the instructors, one on one tutoring and review of images and portfolios. Workshops are held in some of the most beautiful locations in the world. These locations will offer magnificent opportunities to capture beautiful images.

WHAT IS THE NORMAL SCHEDULE DURING A WORKSHOP

Lots and lots of shooting. And after that, more shooting!

Usually, there is a sunrise/morning shoot and a late afternoon/sunset shoot that are pre-scheduled at specific locations. Normally we will venture out before sunrise to arrive at specific locations by sunrise. The attendees are split into small groups and usually groups go to different locations so as not to be crowded at any one location. We will normally travel in vans that will allow one staff person and an instructor to 5 student - attendees. After sunrise we will have breakfast and this is usually followed by a morning workshop session by one of the instructors Lunch is usually followed by an afternoon session before heading out to catch the sunset. Some workshops may have all day shoots depending on locations. After dinner we will normally hold an evening workshop and or free time to work on your images.; Instructors and staff will be available to help with software related questions or image enhancement.
