Another part of the world, a different culture, a morphology of the unique territory. Jordan is an extraordinarily fascinating land: located in the fertile crescent region, largely made up of deserts and wide plateaus, it has always been the natural corridor for journeys from East Africa to Asia and Europe. Its places, full of history and references to the past, the surprising landscapes and glimpses suspended in time that constantly overlook the passage of the traveler, make it a privileged stage for a stage of photographic deepening in the field. This workshop, aimed at developing in the participants a new sense of "feeling" the landscape, is organized to make landscape photography in the most famous (and some unpublished) scenarios of Jordan. The planned itinerary, the result of an in-depth knowledge of the places, will move from the capital Amman to the south, along the splendid road of the Kings and then enter the silence of the Wadi Rum desert, where for two days we will move in 4x4 in search of better ideas, staying in tented camp. We will then leave for the inevitable Petra, where we will have all the time necessary to enjoy the incredible scenery that its "treasures" offer. The shores of the Dead Sea, the largest depression of the Planet (-400mt) will then frame the last day of shooting, in the enchantment of unimaginable shapes and colors. Particular attention was paid to making constant contact possible with the meanings of this area of the Middle East, in order to allow a complete understanding of it. Photographic training in the field, continuous review of the work done with HD projections, insights on history, customs and traditions, will transform this photographic adventure into a fulfilling and unforgettable moment of life.
