Online Photography Workshop

Eligibility

Above 16 years old.

Curriculum

This workshop would focus on the technical as well as the conceptual aspects of making photographs. Not only would the student delve into understanding the details of the camera, but the distinguishing factor is that the discourse would involve discussions of different kind of photographs, photographers, and the philosophy of making and reading images. This course is for anyone and everyone who has no prior experience in the field and wants to dive into contemporary photo-making.

Students would be suggested reading material (textual and visual) that will be discussed during the lecture. The students’ responsibility would be to create photographs that will culminate into a body of work, which will be curated as an online exhibition at the end of workshop.

There will be two classes a week, for about 45 mins to an hour, for four weeks (8 sessions in total). The classes will be held online via Zoom. A detailed description of the course schedule is as follows:

· The first week would focus on understanding the basic technicalities of the camera: aspects like aperture, ISO, shutter speed, white balance, tone, texture et al. Examples of photographs will be used for instruction. Students would have to make new photographs that would be discussed in the second week.
· The second and third week would involve discussion between the instructor and students on the history, subject matter and purpose of photography. Readings on photography will be made available. The second week would begin by discussion of photographs that the students individually chose to make. These will be contextualized and criticized with respect to the contemporary photography discourse. The third week would primarily focus on photographs and storytelling.

· The fourth week would focus on the development and refinement of projects that the students choose to undertake at the end of the second week.

By the end of the workshop, students would have a sense of direction aligned with the motivations and aspirations that they have for photography.
