What you'll do
We will meet in Zarnesti, which is a small town at the foothills of Piatra Craiului mountain, easily accessible from Brasov & Bran. The Traditional Romanian homes of Zarnesti are known for having unique and ornate metal gates surrounding them. We will tour the area and pick out a few favorite gates for a photo session, we call this "The Gates of Transylvania". Feel free to wear whatever you want to make this photo shoot special and fun. Afterwards we will have a Vegetarian Romanian Traditional lunch. From there we will trek to do our next shoot "The Monastery Cave" a unique old Orthodox Monastery Church in a forest cave. This is a unique experience for all to see an amazing natural temple of peace. Really a great place for interesting photography and the nature trek there is truly beautiful. Once our photo shoot is complete we will have a professional editing session which will also include a critique session and lessons on how to improve your personal photography. You will learn how to plan your shoots, produce powerful compositions, tell a story with your photos, and better use your camera’s settings to achieve creative effects. All levels of photography are welcome. We visit little known areas that are unique and beautiful, off the beaten path locations which is a real treat for those wanting to raise their photography skills in a beautiful setting.
