Why take photos? What makes a good photo? These were the questions with which started the whole-day photography workshop held at the New Acropolis Centre of Székesfehérvár, Hungary. With the help of Peter Oravecz, 18 participants of different ages and experience learned not only about the technical and compositional aspects of photography, but also through examples and exercises, how to catch the right moment with their camera, so that the photos beside the aesthetical impression they give, make the observers reflect, too.
