Extremadura Tours

Extremadura Tours

Located in the peninsular west, Extremadura is one of the Spanish regions with more environmental 

richness. The Extremadura tour will have its base in Trujillo.

Thanks to its location, this tour offers a wide array of sites for the photography of fauna and flora without having to cover great distances. There will be visits to the Monfragüe National Park, the Cornalvo National Park, the Villuercas Geopark, Íbores and Jara, the plains of Trujillo, the Orellana reservoir or the Cíjara Reserve, among other places.

The trips will take place in small groups up to 7 people in order to provide a better attention to our clients. Become a nature photographer in the best European place to practice. During the expedition you will learn:

Basic Photographic concepts

Knowing your camera is essential in making good pictures. We will introduce the opening diaphragm, the shutter speed and the ISO to obtain a perfect exposition in our pictures. We will learn the advantages of taking pictures with a RAW format and we will compare them to JPEG; we will discuss too about the shooting modes, and about the equipment we have. If you already manage those concepts, we will directly move forward to the following instructions.

Filters use

In this lesson we will see the types of available filters, which ones are a better fit for our type of photographs, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of using them.  We will try different polarized filters and neuter density filters in landscape pictures. We will learn too to create a movement effect on water flows and clouds.

Tecnique and composition

In order to communicate what we want with our photographs, it is essential to master different photographic techniques and composition rules.

In this lesson we will see known rules such as that of the third, moving up to advanced techniques. We will learn to use techniques in the field, such as the single-scan, the bracketing or the time-blending, where the post processed begins to play an important role.

Landscape

We will implement the previous lessons about filter use and techniques, but we will learn too about the most adequate parameters for landscape photography, how to take panoramic photos, and how to ensemble them afterwards.  All this from the most photogenic places you could ever imagine.

Fauna

In this lessons we will learn about techniques and advices to take wildlife pictures worthy of any magazine cover.

We will analyse the different material available on the market and the different options we have for taking pictures of the wildlife. We will have the opportunity to take pictures from hideouts at the best European place to capture birds of prey, the Monfragüe National Park. We will have the opportunity to see hundreds of different species in their natural habitat.

Night photography

It is probably one of the photographic disciplines that attracts the most public attention. Being at one of the places with less light pollution, we cannot miss the chance of learning and practising night photography. We will study concepts like the near point distance, essential for these kind of photographs. We will learn about different techniques such as the light painting and the circumpolar, and we will have lessons on astronomy in the hands of professionals.

Opiniones de nuestros clientes

Una semana increíble viajando por una de las provincias más desconocidas de España. Son innumerables las especies que he podido fotografiar. Yo viajé en primavera y es una época muy recomendable por los colores que tiene el campo, pero seguro que en otros momentos del año como en otoño el paisaje también es espectacular

Alberto Mesa

La expedición nos llevó a lugares que parecían sacados de otras partes del mundo. No es necesario ir a África para realizar un buen safari fotográfico y contemplar la fauna salvaje

Pilar Lara

This tour offers the perfect combination of flora and fauna photography in one of the most natural and unspoiled regions of Spain. Combined with extensive local knowledge of the region, knowledge of fauna and flora and detailed expertise in the art of photography, this tour both informative and a complete experience
