Last week photokina organized a contest via their facebook page and I was one of the lucky winners of a Scott Kelby Light It - Shoot It - Retouch It - Live workshop in Cologne!
After some hard hours of planning how to get from Klagenfurt to Cologne, which was finally by putting myself in train for half a day and making stops in Salzburg and Munich, I reached Cologne at midnight August 10th. As I had plenty of time during the night and anyway didn't know where to sleep till morning, I decided to take a nightwalk and make myself a bit familiar with this city! The beautiful picture below is where this long night took me, it was taken from the Hohenzollern bridge with view direction to Zoobridge.
After this nightwalk I've seen a youth hostel nearby on the map, went there and asked to get a roof over my head for some hours, cause it was quite fresh, though it was summer!
On the way to the workshop next day I met some people who also didn't get the right way to the Photokina building, but finally we made it, and the day went pretty intresting, was by the way the first time for me to take part in such a seminar. Scott Kelby was quite a funny guy which really understood his work and how to deal with the audience!
Was really woth it but maybe little bit to short. Train went back 03.20 a.m. in the morning and I arrived in Klagenfurt at 01.17 p.m.
