About this course

While there is a technical aspect to using a camera, it is equally crucial to understand how to frame what you see and know what you want to capture. There is always an aspect to taking a picture that changes with the light, your state of mind, time of day etc. What makes it worth taking a picture today might not be true tomorrow; in that sense, there are no second chances. This is especially true when photographing people – when we see them, where we see them, and how we approach them.

This course takes place over eight Thursday evenings.

Course Description

To create the basis for a narrative, this course will combine different types of photography, such as landscape, portrait, documentary and street photography. By the end of the course, you will have created your own storytelling project and gained confidence in approaching a subject and trusting your insitncts. The course is mainly based on-site as where we will be discussing participants' work, as well as venturing outside for short short assignments. You will also be asked to complete creative tasks between lessons.
