A mainly practical course that combines technical and theoretical sessions by providing the basic general knowledge to get started in the world of photography.
Among others, the following themes will be developed: Photographic process, camera, aperture, shutter, depth of field, light sensitivity, color temperature, white balance, lenses, exposure, strobe, composition, portrait, landscape, photo-reportage and still life.
We will practice lighting in a photo studio and outdoors. We will do some field trips to put into practice the knowledge acquired during the course.
The course will end with a basic digital postproduction class.
