Photograph Cuba on March 7th- 13th, 2017
“Friends of Photography” has recently partnered up with PhotoFly Travel to shoot photographs in Cuba. We will be staying mostly in the city of Havana doing street shooting with one-side trip out of the city during the week. After some Cuban coffee we will start out early in the morning the capture the good light then later in the afternoon twilight will do the same. Afternoons (when the light hard and hot) Frederic Larson will edit your work and even teach you some Adobe Photoshop and help you improve your SEO rating. We will have daily group photo-critiques each night after dinner. Larson will be your photo teacher as the locals we be your photo-guide providing you with ground transportation to the most photographic treasures in the county. We will make it a point to choose the most visual spots and stay way from the typical snapshot cruise tourist scene. Your photo adventure will be “Taylor Made” for the group and we will be flexible enough to change direction to make the most compelling photographs of your trip. On March 12th while in Cuba there will be a “full moon,” so put that on your photo-list, it will be magical. With that – join us! Cuba Awaits!
Note: This trip is physically moderate. There’s going to be a lot of walking. We will be exploring Havana on foot, some days it can add up to hours of walking. All in all, the days are pretty active, and hot, so bring good shoes and a great attitude!
