Suited for both beginners and experienced users, this series of 2-hour long evening classes will look at everything involved in creating a photograph, from capture to output. Using clear to understand language, all sessions are fully illustrated with graphics, photographs, and prints accompanied by all relevant information.
For beginners, these sessions explain how both analogue and digital equipment and their respective technologies work allowing them to make better use of their equipment.
For the experienced image makers, the sessions provide a full in depth understanding regarding the workings of both `` allowing informed decisions to be made when challenging technical and conceptual conventions expanding their creative possibilities.
A photograph, at its most basic level, is a two-dimensional visual representation of something three dimensional. But, in addition to this objectivity, photography also has a subjective dimension. It is this subjectivity that provokes thinking, invites viewers to consider what it means to look at what they are looking at, and to wonder what could have been the reasons for that photograph to be created.
When looked from this perspective, Photography can also be understood as a language. All topics will be approached both from a technical and a creative/subjective perspective. Technically, both digital and analogue photographic process will be looked at, each part of the process explained, the differences between the various types of equipment and their respective advantages/disadvantages looked at.
From a creative point of view, we will discuss the impact technical choices have in the final meaning of an image, the use of technique as a creative tool rather than a strict technical parameter, and the relationship between photography and contemporary culture.
Essentially, we will look at photography as a language.
