During this online Photography Summer School you will be able to take part in three exciting & hands-on workshops. This photography course mixes alternative and analogue photography with digital photography. You do not need expensive equipment for this workshop, please feel free to use your smart phone throughout the course.
The sessions will cover:
Cyanotype Printing - cyanotype is one of the earliest forms of photography, first discovered in the 1800's by Sir John Herschel. The cyanotype technique uses UV Sensitive paper, objects & sunlight to create striking blue & white prints! During the morning session, you will be introduced to the history, science and techniques before taking some time to produce your own prints in your own time away from the screen. We will rejoin online in the afternoon to explore your outcomes & future possibilities of cyanotype printing!
Camera obscura - A camera obscura is a darkened space with a small hole for light to travel through, the control of the light creates a projection inside the darkened space! During the morning session, you will be introduced to the history, science and techniques before taking part in a step by step workshop to create your own handheld camera obscura. You will then take some time away from the screen to photograph or video the projection inside your camera obscura. We will rejoin online in the afternoon to view your outcomes & future possibilities of camera obscuras!
Flat Lay Photography - A flat lay is an image shot directly from above – a bird's eye view of an array of carefully arranged objects. During the morning session, you will be shown examples of flat lay photography before following a step by step workshop to get you started. You will then be given time away from the screen to create & photograph your own flat lay setups. We will rejoin online in the afternoon to view your outcomes & future possibilities of flat lay photography!
