Tuscany Workshop

Tuscany on The Backroads with Elizabeth Opalenik

.
In July 2018 I participated in Elizabeth Opalenik’s photographic workshop in a renovated castle near Buonconvento, Tuscany. Avoiding the more touristed areas, we explored old farmhouses, a goat farm, vineyards, hot springs, and cobble-stoned hilltop villages surrounded by golden sunflowers and fields of hay bales, all under dramatic skies.
.
Dancers and models came for our intense photo sessions often on the grounds of the Castelnuovo Tancredi with a sparkling pool (great for underwater and infraRed work), acres of olive groves, ancient brick buildings, moss-covered rocks, and polychrome walls. as usual Elizabeth gave 200% as she poked and prodded us to see more clearly, dig deeply, and relate more profoundly. It was a magical place to meet wonderful people, create, and relax.
