Itinerary

5 day / 4 night holiday – proposed itinerary.

Following consultation with the client I discover,

  • that they are interested in landscapes and historical architecture;
  • they use a Canon digital slr, but wish to explore traditional film photography and processing;
  • they have some basic post production skills, using Lightroom and Photoshop;
  • would like some suggestions as to how they can give their images a bit more ‘punch’ and presence in post production;
  • have no experience of having their images professionally printed.
