Photography course - Trimester 3 : Affirming your style, developing your photographic writing
Intermediate: develop your style Evening courses
Trimester 3 will be entirely dedicated to the realisation of a personal project. Over a period of 9 weeks, you will build on and finesse your photographic work to get it to its best form.
During the first phase of this trimester, it will be necessary to decide on the theme of your project; we will discuss your ideas and study the different possibilities. By raising essential questions such as "What meaning do I want to convey?", "From which photographic angle?" and "For what purpose?", we will establish a theme to work with.
The second phase of the curriculum will be dedicated to shooting and monitoring the evolution of your project. During each class the teacher will review your images, give you feedback, inspire you with photographers and their works and discuss the progress of your project. Some classes will be focused on shooting and this is a great opportunity to work on and explore your style, both technical and artistic, with your teacher’s guidance.
The third phase of this curriculum will be the finalisation phase.
First, we will make the final selection of the images via your preferred software (Lightroom, Bridge, etc.). The selection will depend on the final form of the project you envisage (a series of prints, a book, or both).
Once you have selected your final images, we will edit your images using a program like Lightroom or Camera Raw.
Finally, we will work on the realisation of an exhibition, a book, a slide show or a digital gallery.
The dates for the next trimester class are: 15/07, 22/07, 29/07, 05/08, 12/08, 19/08, 26/08, 02/09, 09/09, 16/09, 23/09, 30/09.

At the beginning of each trimester, the first class is dedicated to a presentation of the participants, in order to evaluate and share the levels and expectations of each one; the small number of students allows the curriculum and the courses to be adjusted according to this information. In the same way, the photographer in charge of the course presents their work as an author. They are a professional photographer experienced in the field of photographic techniques (shooting, editing, etc.), with a professional photographic practice of commission (press, corporate, etc.), and as an author (personal projects for long courses, exhibitions, etc.).
