PHOTOGRAPHY Workshops 2012-2013
Prague, Czech Republic—Workshops are offered June through October, 2012-2013
Prague Photography Workshops
The 1,000 year-old capital of the Czech Republic is renowned as the preeminent cultural and artistic destination of Central Europe. Its unparalleled artistic heritage has produced many of the world’s leading photographic artists. Intermediate-to-advanced photographers will find inspiration in the beauty and richness of the surroundings by visiting some of the historic sites, such as the Prague Castle, Wallenstein Palace, St.Vitus Cathedral, and the famous Charles Bridge.
This week-long workshop enables students to choose a concentration, or combine studies in any of the following areas:
Creative Travel Photography is a location class with emphasis on representative places, and people within the context of these dynamic environments. Concept, preparation, and responsiveness to the ever-changing scenes allow the student to realize a more complete story of their travel experiences.
Architectural Photography classes will allow the student to master the intricacies of perspective control, color balance, innovative composition, and precision exposure techniques. Capture Prague’s architectural riches from St. George’s Basilica (built 920 A.D.) to Frank Gehry’s acclaimed “Fred and Ginger” house (built 1996) in this unique location class.
Studio Still Life Photography offers individual instruction in advanced lighting techniques and photo styling methods, enabling students to produce exceptional fine-art, or commercial still-life images.
Fine-art Figure Photography classes team the student with our accomplished Czech model for the collaborative interaction required for successful fine-art figurative images. Studio sessions stress appropriate lighting techniques, and work toward a greater compositional sophistication.
Studio classes will be held in our state-of-the-art facilities located in the city center. Our two studios are outfitted with up to 6,000 watts of digital studio flash, and a complete selection of accessories. There are Mac workstations for image preview, and transfer of images to photo CDs. Nearby professional retailers provide quick processing, film, memory cards, and accessories.
Students will alternate course instruction with days devoted to cultural discovery events, which fully immerse the student in Prague’s wealth of cultural offerings. These may include, but are not limited to:
- Castle tours
