For advanced learners who want to see with a new concept and professional guidance.

This course is a four-hour city tour and photo review with training for those who already know the important technical basics of their camera and are looking for new perspectives and challenges. You will learn to photographically explore Frankfurt, and discover new motifs with your camera. Under professional guidance from multimedia journalist and reportage-photographer Nils Thies new challenges and results are enhanced. On this tour, you can either choose to follow a concept, which will be discussed at the beginning, or you can be spontaneous. Technical questions will also be addressed. A short review at the end of the tour provides feedback and gives you an idea of the impressions that your photographs can make. Interesting urban areas and themes await you: city parks, life around the train station, the central business district of Frankfurt, or just observing  people and nature along the river Main. This workshop will focus on different topics depending on the weather, current issues or the wishes of the participants.

If you want, you can take pictures with high-quality Olympus cameras, which the FFF’s main sponsor Olympus Germany makes available for the workshops.
