Things to do in Vienna: Create your own artwork!

Today I met Stefanie from Art-o. She emailed me a few days ago and invited me to her new art studio. Funny thing is that I have had this idea of painting on a canvas for a long time lately. And it happened. Your thoughts create your life, they say…

So today was the day I went to Stefanie’s art studio in Vienna’s 7th district. At the beginning, Stefanie explained to me a few techniques, gave me lots of tips and tricks, and then I chose the colours.

Beige, pink, gold and a little bit of black

The main colours I used were beige, pink, and gold. We also splashed a little bit of black at the end. It was the first time I painted on a canvas. I didn’t have an idea what I was doing. But I had a precise vision regarding the colours I wanted to use. I wouldn’t like to hang on my wall a painting with colours that doesn’t reflect my style and do not complement the interior of my little apartment. I also wanted harmony and I love minimalism, so I would’t go for harsh extra saturated colours. Beige, pink, gold and black were just perfect for me.

You can also book a painting workshop with Stefanie. Feel free to text her or call her. I promise you, it’s going to be an amazing experience. My artwork is now at Stefanie’s art studio. Stefanie will varnish it and frame it, and I will go pick it up in about 2 weeks, when it’s going to be ready. Can’t wait!things to do in Vienna

Hello there, friend! I am Silia, a self taught photographer based in Vienna, also known as the founder and editor behind one of the most successful Vienna’s blog “The Viennese Girl”.

I grew up in Athens and in 2011 I decided to establish my base in Vienna and pursue my dreams of creating interesting content that catches the eye and celebrates the joys of life.

Your Vienna Photo Shoot!

Your Vienna Photo Shoot!

Are you a tourist in Vienna? Let me be your Vienna photographer! On the day of the shoot, expect a relaxed vibe that feels like exploring Vienna with a friend. We can meet in Albertinaplatz and begin our photo session from there.

There are countless photo spots in Vienna city centre and we can all discover them together. I am happy to suggest the most photogenic locations, but I also remain flexible in case you have a specific wish.

How many photos

After the shoot, you’ll receive a link via email from where you can download your beautiful high-resolution images within 3 business days of the shoot ending.

While many photographers limit the amount of photos you get from the session, I don’t. I cull the images and delete duplicates as well as any with closed eyes, and then edit and deliver the best images — with many shoots ending with 100+ images!

I promise that my photos will be a cherished souvenir for years to come!

ONE – ON – ONE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS IN VIENNA
SUMMER 2022

I have been asked to give photography workshops in the past, but due to a heavy travel schedule, it has never been possible. 

Now that the weather is nice and we can shoot outdoors without freezing, the COVID-19 related restrictions have been lifted, I decided to finally give One to One Photography Workshops to anyone interested. 

It’s time to share all the knowledge and experience I have gained in the last 10 years. 

THE PRIVATE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP WILL CONSIST OF 2 SESSIONS IN 2 DIFFERENT DAYS

DAY 1: A fun shooting day

We meet at Wunderladen cafe behind Karlskirche (coffee is on me) where we get to know each other and right after we go out around this area to take photos together. The goal is to learn how to shoot manual. Because this is how the pro photographers shoot and this is how you can take beautiful pictures. 

DAY 2: The editing day

We meet at Wunderladen cafe behind Karlskirche and we edit the photos that we took together in Lightroom. I show you the way I edit photos and how I make my photos look like this. I also offer you my 15 favourite presets. In this meeting, I will bring my laptop, and if you’d like you can also bring yours. 

In DAY 2 you’ll learn:
  • how to edit photos on LR and other tips and tricks, such as
  • how to take self portraits (not just selfies)
  • how to duplicate your self in photos
  • how to easily remove unwanted lines or objects from your photos without using Photoshop
  • how to split a horizontal photo in two pieces and post it as one on Instagram
  • AND you get my 15 favourite presets that I use everyday for free

I am not able to know in advance how many hours each session will last. My aim is that these sessions are relaxing and enjoyable for you, without any stress of time.

This is not an online workshop. 

REQUIREMENTS AND MATERIALS

No previous experience is required. In terms of equipment, you will need a camera (any DSLR or mirrorless camera). Just in case you don’t have one, we can use mine. 

WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR?

This course is for anyone with an interest in learning or improving photography.

HOW TO BOOK

Please email silia@theviennesegirl.com and let me know which 2 dates are good for you.

TUITION FEE: 300€ incl. tax (an invoice will be provided via email)

Looking forward to your emails!

We visited Setagaya Park the other day. A small, tranquil Japanese garden with a fish pond & cherry blossoms in Vienna’s 19th district.

Unfortunately not my apartment in Vienna … but what a great decor, right? And how nice I had  the chance to see it with my own eyes AND I was allowed to take some photos and share them with you on The Viennese Girl blog. Could be the deco of a small design boutique hotel, but nope..it’s a private apartment in Vienna!
