Workshop “Fairytale Forest” with Daniel Laan and Inge Bovens
One of the first landscape photographers who became a source of inspiration when I started photography is Inge Bovens. I love and admire her beautiful forest photography! A few months ago I found out Inge was going to do a photography workshop called “fairytale forest” with another landscape photographer, Daniel Laan. Until then I was not familiar with the work of Daniel, but I had a look at his website and quickly fell in love with his work too. This workshop was a great opportunity to meet two photography heroes in one day, to learn from the best and to be inspired by their vision and workflow. I quickly registered and awaited the workshop which was going to take place on sunday the 24th of September. It seemed like ages, but last Sunday the day had finally arrived!
It was early. Very early! At 6.45 AM the participants of the workshop arrived at he designated meeting spot near Speulderbos forest. It was still dark so it was a little hard to distinguish faces, but everyone introduced themselves and there we went, into the forest! The weather was perfect, a lot of mist and not too cold. Daniel had set out some waypoints on his GPS. Soon everyone was busy making breathtaking shots while Inge and Daniel pointed out some great angles and gave tips on how to get the most out of these shots.
Around 11.00 AM it was time to move back to the starting point to have lunch and start the afternoon program. Daniel and Inge both showed their workflows for processing and gave a lot of practical tips and tricks. A few hours later the workshop finished and everyone went back home. I was very eager to start processing the shots taken that day! The photos in this post a some of the results. Hope you like them! Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.
