This workshop is aimed at making you see the world as an artist.

You will be given theoretical instruction on how to organise your vision based on the principles of beauty and design.

Then, in a real photo shoot session, you will be instructed on how to use your camera in both a practical manner and in a creative manner.

The rules of photography will be repeated with guidance and instruction!

Once you learn how to command your camera and apply the principles, your world will open up to the grand knowledge of artistic vision!

"Absolutely excellent. I was given a lovely camera as a present two years ago but had no idea what to do with all the complex options it came with. So I had hardly used it. After just a couple of hours on this course I had learnt so much that I am planning trips just to take my camera out. There was lots of personal attention from Karla and loads of ideas of simple things to try that were really effective."

* Christine Wood of Javea

"I thoroughly enjoyed it. I found it very helpful and interesting. I found myself absorbing lines, shapes and textures all the way home!! Also this workshop gave me a greater confidence to play around with the camera. I learned a lot in a short time. Karla is very informative with a lovely sense of humour which makes it a pleasure to learn from someone who obviously has great knowledge and a great passion for what she does."

*  Laura Donoghue

"The notes and lecture that Karla started the morning with were most instructive. I have become more familiar with my camera, which was my aim in taking the course. Holding the course at Montgo Verd was an inspired idea - there was no shortage of subjects to photograph. Karla's teaching style is informal, well planned, thoughtful. I would recommend Karla Darocas."

* Julie Price, Javea

"It was a fantastic sunny day and Karla was very friendly and informative. She taught with enthusiasm on how to take photos by looking at the beauty of things around us and applying the principles of harmony, colour, form, texture and lighting, etc. I would certainly recommend Karla’s photo walks as it is a great way to meet other people and a fun way to learn how to take better photos. I feel I received some great photography tips and my photo taking has much improved only after a few short hours." 

* Shirley Renouf - Orba, Alicante

"Karla had a friendly relaxed style of teaching as we wandered around the village. The focus of the information was less technical than I had expected, concentrating on the beauty elements of the shot. I was amazed at how much my photos improved throughout the morning by employing the principles that Karla taught us. Karla has a keen interest and background in Spanish art and this knowledge shines through in her approach to photography. I recommend her walks not only in order to learn more about the art of taking photographs, but also as a pleasant way to pass the time." 

* Anita from Moraira

"Karla is a truly talented photographer. She combines her background in fine arts with the camera's technology and through the lens wonderful creations are born enabling the viewer to see and appreciate the hidden beauty that is around us. A flower, an insect and a building come to life as a digital portrait reflecting her passion for photography." 

* Margaret Den Hartog, Javea, Alicante

"I highly recommend Karla's photography workshops. Even with my little compact camera, I learned a lot about how versatile it really is and what happens when I dig down into menus I had rarely touched. Whatever level you are at or whatever gear you have, Karla will help you get more out of your digital photography. Definitely give this a go!"
