One of the places that I have always wanted to travel to is Saint Petersburg, Russia.
It has such beautiful scenery, a rich history, and great food.
It is the most Westernized city in Russia and the city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was founded by Tsar Peter the Great in 1703. It is important to Russian economics as it has a port on the Baltic Sea.
One of the reason that Saint Petersburg is so idyllic for travel is that due to the move of the capital to Moscow, much of the 18th and 19th-century architecture has remained unchanged. Most of the modern buildings were built in Moscow. This has left Saint Petersburg as a relic of the past with beautiful, ornate buildings. Located on the river Neva, the water only adds to the beauty of the city.
Some of the sites I would like to see are Saint Isaac's Cathedral, Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral, Catherine Palace, and the Kunstkamera.
That's why if I ever get a chance to go, I will want to take the most amazing photos possible. I want to capture the beauty of the city centre. I want to have my photos represent what I see, smell and touch.
This lecture series will do just that. It will fine tune your photography skills. No more too dark photos. No more will the site only 1/2 be in the picture. You will learn from the best, from a National Geographic photographer.
