This course is designed for those who wants to take full control of their camera and move away from random phone photography to a more conscious photography, in order to create personal creative projects
Each week we will immerse together in technical, practical and historical aspects of photography. 
We’ll start from the basics elements of photography, such as the relationship between ISO, aperture and shutter speed and then understand the ideal settings to operate in each light condition. We’ll realise the potential of the camera, looking at different lenses and figure out how to use them. 
The course intends to explore the history of photography and projects from many of the world’s most talented photographers, to discover new inspiring stories and ideas. This will help the students to understand the art of composition and how even a small change can make the difference. By doing this, we’ll look at different lighting schemes and learn how to create playful and meaningful effects in our photos. 
Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate photographer, the aim is to learn together by doing, working both in small collaborative groups and individually. You’ll be assigned small exercises to carry outside the class each week which will help you improve your own style and approach and find advice from each other for better shooting and editing.
At end of the course, you’ll be a confident photographer who enjoys to engage with the photographic process.
