Photography

This course is the first of the three years of the Photography course at the E.A.O. and is aimed at those who want to deepen their knowledge of the photographic discipline. We will see both traditional (analog) and current (digital) procedures.

Obviously, the specific weight of the latter has an impact on a greater profusion of digital teachings.

Photograph 3

Through the tools learned in previous years, we will approach the realization of personal projects acquiring the highest level of creative autonomy possible. We will develop a project from its conception to the final show (writing, pre-production, realization, diffusion...). We will consolidate the use of the tools used in previous years.

Slow photo

When things happen so fast, no one can be sure of anything, anything at all, not even himself.

Milan Kundera (The Slowness, 1996).

This course emphasizes time, pause and slowness as rhythms of approach to photography. Aimed at those who want to contextualize, theorize and put into practice a slow photography and tempo that give space for reflection and awareness of the photographic act.

In a 21st century characterized by technology and immediacy, the main objective of the course is to promote and enhance a more leisurely and contemplative pace in the photographic act. To pay more attention to the small details, to the everyday, to the non-noise, to look more and better.

Access conditions for Slow PhotoYou must have a good command of the camera in manual mode. It is also necessary to have basic knowledge of photometry (continuous light and flash measurement) as well as of black and white development and copying in the chemical laboratory.

CONTENTS

  • The concept of "laboratory" (chemical or not) as a space for experimentation, reflection and sharing.
  • Shooting: the choice of camera. 35mm vs medium format vs large format.
  • Chemical photography, a possible path to slowness.
  • Digital photography can also be "slow".
  • The camera obscura.
  • Personal and family archives.
  • Approach to portraiture
  • Photographic editing.
  • How to read photographs.
  • Viewing photographs
  • Collaboration of guest artists.
  • Carrying out small personal and collective projects.
