Porto & Aveiro Phototour 2020 / 2021

Porto

Porto is a well known city in the north of Portugal, but the beautiful Aveiro lagoon is perhaps not so well known. Join me, Paulo Silva for some great photographic opportunities in both locations. I offer a 5 day landscape photo tour in this Portuguese area which is close to my home and my heart. In Porto we will photograph famous views of the high lying city, the steel bridge, and the barges carrying barrels of port below on the Douro River. In the Aveiro Lagoon we will seek out the best tides, light and reflections to photograph the fishing boats in their peaceful surroundings. In the pretty town of Aveiro we will try some blue hour photography.

Workshop Porto

WORKSHOP PORTO

The beautiful city of Porto hardly needs an introduction. The second largest Portuguese city lies on the banks of the Douro River and it is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The most characteristic views of the city, including the Ribeira district with its ancient houses, and the famous Dom Luis steel bridge can be seen from the low lying shores of the Douro. Here you also find the traditional barges carrying barrels of the local port. This creates many photographic possibilities which we will be photographing at sunrise and sunset.

During our 1-day workshop (private or group) you will have the possibility to create appealing images using various techniques such as long exposure and blue hour photography. Participants will also have the opportunity to use various filters that will be provided.
