DESERT MINIMALISM, DUBAI
5th - 6th November 2020
Day 1 - Meet up at 5.45am, leaving at 6am sharp heading for the desert to seek out a variety of minimalist compositions, some known and some untouched by human footprint. In total we will expect to visit 4-5 desert locations, depending on the weather, which will also dictate which locations we visit. We will head into a pristine desert, allowing for very simple compositions and filtered morning light. We head back for a 12.30pm lunch (all inclusive) and after lunch head into the edit classroom for an in depth look at location scouting, choosing your subjects, an introduction into how Anthony edits his portfolio images and composition techniques.
Day 2 - Meet at 6.45am and the group will leave at 7am sharp. We will travel deep into the Dubai / Sharjah desert to a stunning location that provides a multitude of composition opportunities. The morning light will offer soft tone and contrasting compositions. We then head off the beaten track to a location called ‘Ghost Village’ which is a deserted collection of houses that have been immersed overtime by sand. We then head back to Dubai for lunch at 1.00pm (all inclusive). After a team lunch the day will end with an editing masterclass, that will include - editing styles, processing, sharpening techniques, cloning and the opportunity to edit some of the groups images.
