What’s on- The visual language of photography: Photo Walk Cómpeta (pics)
Tuesday 3 April, 10:00 – 15:30, starting at C/San Antonio 65
€25 including handout and drink at Hotel Balcón
To book: nikki@unlimited-exposure.com In this experiential workshop you’ll explore the power of the photograph as a method of personal communication. A photograph is more than a mere visual representation of something seen by the photographer. What is chosen to be in the frame, what remains outside the viewer’s sight, the quality of the light, juxtaposition, symbolism and metaphor, all colour the information conveyed in an image.
We start with an introduction to photography as a process of visual storytelling, discussing techniques and examples. You’ll then have a set of tasks – photographic exercises – to do wandering around Cómpeta, to practice a different way of seeing. We’ll break for lunch which also allows you time to edit and select your favourite images, and deliver them to Nikki – either over wifi or bring your own card reader with a USB connection.
The workshop will close with a group discussion and evaluation over drinks at Hotel Balcón, but it doesn’t end there!
Participants’ favourite photographs will be showcased on the ArtWalk website/facebook page to invite a public vote. The image with the most likes wins its creator a bottle of Cómpeta wine, ¡Salud!
This workshop is suitable for anyone with an interest in photography. You don’t need to own an SLR, a camera phone is fine! Language: The workshop will be led in English, with instructions available in Spanish, German, French, and Dutch. Number of participants: minimum 5, maximum 10
