Course content

Workshop 01 - The basics: time, aperture, focal length, color temperature, etcPhotography is a creative process. However, if you do not know the technical possibilities of your tool, you lack the basics for every step you take. You do not have to read the entire manual of a camera in order to operate it. But the few really necessary parameters must be learned and mastered.

Workshop 02: The portrait: How does a favorable picture succeed?
How does an interesting portrait succeed, which not only shows the surface, but lets one look deeper? How do I inspire the viewer of my photos? Does it need courage and passion? A feeling for the right light? Or just technical know-how?
Workshop 03 - The studio: everything only asked?
The photo studio resembles the alchemists laboratory. Foreign-looking devices unrelated to the real world. We want to try to discover the secrets and advantages of artificial light.

Workshop 04 - Develop a contemporary visual language
How do I speak in pictures? Every day we look at countless photographs in magazines and magazines, in social networks and in our everyday environment. Which pictures do we hang on and why? An attempt to sensitize for the different languages of photography.

Workshop 05 and 06 - Coachings
In individual coaching, personal topics are worked on in order to be able to present an independent project at the end of the course. Depending on the number of participants, the coaching duration varies.

Workshop 07 - Internal presentation
At the end of the workshop all participants of the photography workshop will present their project in words and pictures.
