Here is a nice little piece of news for all those who want to learn
more about photography...
MASHRABIA ART GALLERY and V?ronique Audergon
"For a long while, we believed that to be a photographer we just
needed a camera, a lens, and some chemicals. But we rapidly came out
of the illusion? Like the musician, the painter or the sculptor, the
photographer needs two essential qualities: experience and feeling."
Ernest LACAN, "Esquisses Photographiques" - 1856.
MASTER THE BASE? AND FORGET IT!
Mastering a few basic and simple rules is essential to be able
to "forget" them and concentrate on new possibilities. Photography
is a magic world and our idea is to show the participants how vast
this world is and hopefully we could open new doors together.
To understand how the camera works and controls the light, three
Film + Speed + Aperture
What is it? How does it work? How do they interact with each other?
What is the depth of field? How can you photograph movement? Or
freeze it? ? ? ?

The workshop is essentially based on discussions and practice rather
The fundamentals of the course will be explained at first and then
the expectations and questions of the participants will be a guide
to the course. Through different exercises, they will be encouraged
to discover, feel and experience the subject by themselves.
Since we will not talk about digital photography, it is a must that
the participants work with a "traditional" camera, not a digital
one. To be able to assimilate the course properly, they should work
with an SLR (Single Lens Reflex) camera, with a manual position. No
