Milan Photo Walk Toggle

This one day walking style photography workshop will teach you all about the manual settings on your camera. We will take the streets of Milan to learn the fundamentals of photography: after a description of how the camera works in different modes (Aperture Priority, Shutter Speed Priority, Manual, etc.) we will focus on the main aspects of photography such as composition, correct exposure (aperture, exposure times and ISO), white balance, depth of field, lens choice and focal length, direction of light, among others. We will also talk about cityscapes and street photography.

The photography workshop will take you through many photogenic tourist locations in Milan, like the Navigli, Brera and the new, modern and shiny area around Piazza Gae Aulenti that we will photograph at sunset. The class is run in small groups of 8 students maximum so you receive plenty of individual help over the 5+ hours.

All types of Digital SLR’s, Bridge & Mirrorless cameras are suitable for this workshop.

When: New 2022 dates coming soon – please contact us to book your private workshop.

Where: We meet at Porta Genova Metro Station, Green Line N.2 – next to the Newsstrand (please buy the Metro Ticket BEFORE we meet, this way we are not going to waste time… we are going to use it to go to Brera after we photograph the Navigli).

Cost: €70 – To register please send us an email at:
