Nowadays in the digital age we are the photographic laboratory of yesteryear, so knowing and managing an adequate workflow, from the capture to get to upload your photograph to a web page or send it to print, is fundamental.
Throughout this journey, your workflow and image processing technics will play a differentiating role, and throughout a one-day session you will know the keys of this process and the tools that will make easier for you that your pictures come to life with just a few clicks of mouse, using for that only the essentials of tools such as Lightroom, Photoshop and some others specific plugins.

Later we take a photo-walk in which we will clarify concepts and doubts, review the photographs that are taken and share practical tips that allow you to understand and dominate the exposure, play with the defocus, freeze the movement or everything contrary, and learn something about composition, so you can start to stop worrying about technique and focus on enjoying photography.
All of this in a simple, consistent, practical and enjoyable way, and with a support after the workshop in case you have new doubts or difficulties when you start walking alone.
The weather was great and shortly began to enter many birds, which allowed us to have endless opportunities to get great shots. Up to seven different species in a very well controlled and prepared lighting stage. Great learning experience, very good material and excellent technical preparation of the teacher. A highly recommended workshop.
Juanjo was instructing us on what kind of birds we would find at this season, at what time by usually eat, what they eat, while he was installing all necessary for the workshop so we didn't had to worry about anything. Beside Juanjo we feel as at home. He is happy to teaching all he knows about bird photography and is an excellent photographer and a pleasant guy so we felt good with him.
In first place thanks for course you teach me last Saturday. Tell you that it helped me to learn a lot, and I'm sure that from now on will get a lot beneffits of everything learned.
The course has met my expectations by far. The theory I thought you explained it great, and although it is a complex issue I believe that the basis to understand the lighting are left very clear. Today I had reviwed the manual a little more slowly and is very complete and worked. The photo session in the afternoon also surprised me for good, without skimping on resources. I'm not a butt-kisser, but long time for me without leaving a course so happy like yesterday and I think is fair to say, like when I'm not satisfied also I say it, of course. Many thanks!
Thank you very much for the course, well organized, better explained and with all resources at our disposal. A highly recommended experience. regards
The workshop was very well organized and deserved much worth it. Customized training allow a better learning experience and also if is not thanks to this workshop never could have had raptors so close and get incredible photos. A highly recommended experience.
