CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP
Sunday Photo walks
Welcome to the world of photography!
In less than a hundred years, photography has become a part of almost every element of our lives. Almost everyone has a camera on their cell phone and takes pictures on a daily basis. We constantly see photographic images on our electronic devices, in print media and in advertisements.
Since photography has become so widespread and diverse, it is widely used both in our daily lives and in the world of Arts!
Photography is an expression of how a photographer sees the world around him. In artistic photography the important thing is not what the camera captures but what the photographer sees and wants to show.
Penelope’s therefore starts the new season by adding two very special artistic photography workshops to our calendar.
The first workshop concerns professionals and the second concerns creative photography.
This course combines creative photography with photography excursions and city walks. You will learn technical tips and learn how to photograph an urban landscape, archaeological sights and life in the city through organized walks in the center of Athens.
The purpose of the seminar is to acquire the basic principles of composition of photographic images, to understand the concepts related with the visual language of digital photography, to learn how to complete a cityscape photo shoot, edit the photos and express yourself in a creative way, acquiring a personal style.
It consists of 6 three-hour meetings. Through the completion of each module, participants will learn techniques, acquire knowledge, improve their creative practices and evolve their personal style to create an exhibition at the end of the third module.
