Who is this Photo Tour for:

Any level of photographer, with any type of camera: SLR, Mirrorless, even Smartphone photographers

What you need:

A DSLR, Mirrorless camera or Smartphone camera. I will teach to any photographic level how to compose an image, deal with lighting situations, use of on and off camera flash.

An accessory flash (Speedlite) for the hotshoe of DSLR's and Mirrorless cameras. If you don't have one, I highly recommend investing in one.

LOTS of memory cards and battries. Always carry extra batteries for your camera model, and extra batteries for your flash units. Batteries are always more expensive in other countries and specific camera batteries may be near impossible to easily find.

Optional accessories:

Tripod and or/Platypod. Highly Recommended. See Platypod's website: https://platypod.com A Platypod allows you to get long exposure images, on this flat plate with a tripod ball head. This allows you to achieve unique angles for images images, and have a stable base from which to shoot in places which don't allow tripods. I will have one on the tour that people can also try out.


Church Interior Low Angle Perspective


  • Wide angle lens for landscapes, architecture and photographing inside buildings like churches.

  • Marcro lens for close-up photography. If you're shooting with a smartphone, there are clip on macro and other lenses available at adorama.com and B&HPhoto.com. You can also rent cameras and lenses at Borrow Lenses or Lensprotogo.

  • A Small Continuous LED Light: To use as a fill light for photos or video. Affordably priced and available here.

  • A laptop computer if you want to do some editing in the evenings. PC or Mac. I will show you how to set up a workflow and some basic editing on my laptop.

  • Backup External Drive: Highly recommended. It's important to make sure to back up your images onto another computer or external hard drive. This Western Digital Portable Drive has a built-in SD card slot and battery storage that can also act as a cell phone charger. No computer needed to upload your photos from your memory card!




What you will learn on this tour:

How to capture not only iconic travel images but engaging images that will make you and your friends wonder if you've turned pro: We'll discuss and learn how to get new perspectives when shooting to upgrade your images to another level. Perspective, shooting angles, close-up photography will be demonstated and you'll then put those lessons to use in real time on our trip.

Photographing people and putting them in your scene: In addition to getting those photos with you and your friend/spouse/significant other in the picture, I'll offer you tips on approaching local people and how not to be intimidated by that; how to frame them and even pose them to get authentic looking images and about sharing those images with your new-found friends.

Use of available and artificial light: How to overcome harsh lighting conditions, backlit settings--avoiding them and dealing with them when there's no alternative--cloudy and rainy settings and how to use fill flash if you are using flash.

Using tripods, Platypods, putting Smartphone clamps on tripods: In low light settings you may want to use a tripod or other stabilizer to eliminate shake for longer exposures.

Basic photo editing and workflow. I'll show you how to easily organize your photos with Adobe Lightroom and also how to do basic edits that will make your images stand out even more.

And much more!



Who Am I:

Robert Feiner is the founder and owner of RZF Images. I'm a professional photographer and have been shooting professionally since 2004 and making images far longer. I've led studio photo workshops and outdoor workshops that focus on photographing people and have done an extensive amount of travel photography.

I've also taken a lot of workshops myself over the years and have noticed a couple of things about them: Many are geared for advanced amateur photographers (nothing wrong with that) and most of them tend to have spouses/partners/significant others who are left out on trips to do their own thing, or don't go on a multi-day photo workshop.

This photo tour is designed for the novice to advanced amateur photographer and is inclusive to someone's partner that isn't into photography. So while you as a serious photographer may want more technical tips and tricks to use your gear to the fullest, your partner may just want decent smartphone photos. And that's fine.

The common denomonator is that whatever your level, novice or serious photographer, you both want images that are properly exposed and have good light and composition. I'll give you instruction and tips at whatever level of photography you're at so you can make great images. And you'll both enjoy photography together, maybe for the first time!

For example:

  • Don't you wish as a novice smartphone photographer you could get an image with both the person in the foreground and the background properly exposed in all settings, instead of it being hit-or-miss?

  • What kind of shooting angles will make your images go from a cliched image to one that stops someone in their tracks?

  • How can you get people in your images that look natural and not posed?

  • Tips on connecting with locals and including them in your images for perspective showcasing a country's culture.

I'll show you how do achieve this and more on our tour. I hope you'll join me.

Feel free to contact me at rzfeiner@rzfimages.com for any questions about this tour.

Thank you and I hope you will join me and advance your photographic skills no matter what your photography level.

Should the minimum number of attendees not be met by 12/1/19, the photo tour workshop portion will be cancelled and you will recieve a 100% refund.
