FOR LOVERS OF PHOTOGRAPHY IN ENGLISH
with Nino-Ana Samkharadze
The photography workshop is designed for amateur photographers who already know how to use their cameras but don’t have much experience in photoshoots. Workshop is a mixture of daily photo shootings, photo critiques and theoretical presentations.
There are no fixed hours. The 5 day workshop will help participants to get to know different styles of photography (commercial, documentary, conceptual, reportage, portraits). History of photography and the most important photographers of last centuries. They will learn about storytelling and how to build a series/photostory.
One day will be dedicated to portrait photography and importance of light directions. They will learn about compositions and basic rules while taking a photo. Also we will talk about the importance and meaning of the colours in photography.Each day participants will have a theory/introductions to various topics and accordingly the second part of the day will be working on assignments. Each morning will start with discussing the photos together with a group that was taken on the previous assignment (composition, light, characters and etc.).
Participants should be ready to be challenged and step out of their comfort zone – they will talk to strangers and shoot in unusual places. They might not feel comfortable on the first day, but by the end of the workshop their personal confidence and social skills will be on another lever.
On the last day of the workshops I will also discuss how to build a portfolio, how to submit photos to various contests, festivals and online magazines, how to promote your work and make online platform.
As a bonus, each participant of the workshop will be able to attend the Kolga Tbilisi Photo Workshops and Portfolio Reviews for free (May 2021).
