Duration: 15 hours per week during 2 weeks
Dates: July 11-22, 2022, workshop in English only, from 9:30am to 12:30pm
This workshop mixes theory and practice: presentation of the work of important street photographers who contributed to the history of photography and of the work of contemporary photographers whose approach and style will be analyzed. Different technical exercises are designed to teach participants how to use their camera with more efficiency and how to better understand the use of lenses in order to improve their photographs, whether they are snapshots, urban landscapes or portraits on site.
Technically, lighting will be carefully studied and the participants will learn how to control natural light in the sometimes tricky context of the street. They will also learn about artificial lighting, acquiring some basic studio techniques as well as important advices to mix natural and artificial lights when shooting outdoors.
Lastly, in complement to the pictures made during exercises in the streets of Paris, the participants will be asked to work on commission in between classes and their production will receive feedback during daily collective edit sessions. These critiques will help them to better organise their editing and production, which will be very useful when launching their own personal street photography projects.
