IREK GRAFF :: FOTOKURSOWNIA :: PHOTO WORKSHOPS


LUKSEMBURG 2016
Photo workshops and field trips with Irek Graff

12-18.04

INFO PL >>


FOR WHOM:

For anybody taking photos with a camera from the sunrise to sunset and even more ;)
The participants will be from Luxembourg and Poland.
Maximum 10 students.
Workshops and lectures planned in Polish and - if needed - in English.

EQUIPMENT:

Suggested equipment:
- DSLR cameras preferred, but advanced compacts are also accepted,
- tripod,
- for details and macro the followng tools may be useful (but not necessary): telephoto lens with macro function, special macro lens, extension tubes or close-up filter. I can lend extension tubes for Canon users.


EDUCATION:

Intermediate level

Outdoor photography in practice:
- looking for the right moment and interesting point of view,
- first decisions - before you press the camera button,
- taking use ot various available light,
- learning different techniques, styles, moods,
- how to capture: architecture, lanscape, nature details, people,
- every day photo assignments.

Sessions with students' image selection, edition and critique.
Useful tips and in-depth photography instruction.
Presentations of photo examples and anti-examples.

I concentrate more on practice and images - their conntent and composition - than on the equipment (especially camera novelties).

Essential coursebook provided.

In future we plan to organize the exhibition of the photos taken during a few editions of the workshops.
