ANALOG IMPRESSIONS The Camera and Attention to Observation
1-5 persons • 1-3 meetings, app. 5 hours each • meetings are set individually • English / German / Hebrew
Photographing analog. This is a totally different experience.
Something catches your sight and you take a picture. What do you look at? What do you see in it? Learn how to see the way your camera does and learn how to help your camera capture what is in your eyes. Analog photography means taking the time for this.
In this special workshop we will look into the basics of analog photography and put theory to practice by photographing indoors and/or outdoors.
This workshop, divided into three parts, is conceived to give you a rounded and whole experience. You can also book any one of the parts separately.
Take a look at the contents and contact me if you’d like some consultation as to which fits best for you.
