In the afternoons each day, participants will practice in the village of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and the Alpilles (the local hills in the area), during which participants will receive individual advice about techniques and composition.

At the end of day three, course participants will review their work with Renate.  Finally, a closing evening will be organized where participants will be encouraged to select a favorite of their own photographs to share with the group. These will be projected onto a screen for all to enjoy and contribute commentary over an apéritif in the garden of Mas des Trois Cyprès.
