Typical Conceptual Photography Workshop Program

DAY ONE: Inspiration, Preparations, Shooting 

- Finding your sources of inspiration. Where you can get ideas from; 
- Shaping your idea, feeling the atmosphere, getting rid of all the unnecessary stuff, keeping the core;
- Preparations to the shoot step by step. How to choose the right locations, models, wardrobe and props. Plan and "The Decisive Moment". Is there space for spontaneity in a fine art shoot?
- Working with a team (make-up artists, decorators, hair-stylists, assistants);
- Shooting two scenes:
1) I show you, how I do it.
2) You are able shoot two ready-made scenes on your own. You’ll have everything in place (model, wardrobe, props); 
- Homework.

 

DAY TWO: Post-processing 


- Short-listing the best shots;
- The actual development process: follow me through my post-processing. Software, filters and plug-ins;
- Looking through and discussing the images that you brought from yesterday’s shooting;
- Find out how my photographs were made and ask your questions

- Portfolio-reviews
