Meander through the ancient winding city streets of Cairo, the cradle of civilization, on a photo tour led by a local professional photographer.
With the help of a professional photographer, gain insights into simple techniques to help you create memorable images. The small group size allows for plenty of questions on colour, contrast, and technique. Learn to use perspective to your advantage and play with light and shadow. Just don't forget your camera – whether digital or film.
