Magnificent landscapes, wild animals, fantastic colours

The Colourclass continues: This class tackles the basics of panoramic photography, astrophotography and wildlife photography. The class also deals with time-lapse photography, video storytelling and video postproduction since everyone with a digital photography camera now also has a powerful video camera at their fingertips. And, of course, we won’t forget to talk about colours in the Colourclass: We explain the basic colour settings of a camera and those in image processing programs, the choice of calibration target and the softproofing workflow for printing with external photo labs.

The Colourclass

Photographer Alexander Heinrichs explains the basics of panoramic photography, astrophotography and wildlife photography in this Colourclass. Filmmaker Stephan Klein provides tips on time-lapse photography, video storytelling and postproduction since people are increasingly using digital photography cameras to capture videos, as well. And, of course, we won’t forget to talk about colours in the Colourclass: Colour management workflow expert Christian Ohlig explains colour settings in the camera, in the image processing programme, calibration target and the softproofing workflow for printing with external photo labs.

The teachers

Photographer and photography coach Alexander Heinrichs, photographer and EIZO colour management workflow expert Christian Ohlig and hunderteins filmmaker Stephan Klein travelled to Namibia for the video series.

They travelled through this fascinating country in southwest Africa for two exciting weeks. They had high expectations and the country did not disappoint.

The location

Namibia has much to offer for photographers. Its variety of desert landscapes with colours ranging from deep red to light yellow, barren steppes, lush grasslands and red stone formations reminiscent of a sci-fi movie setting stand in dramatic contrast to the generally deep blue sky. What’s more, minimal light pollution in Namibia elevates it into an ideal place for photographers of astronomical objects and events. No less fascinating is the fauna of Namibia, which can be admired in numerous national parks and wildlife reserves.
