Course contents

The aim of this course is to deepen and gain new experience in landscape photography. The course is designed with an emphasis on several days of study and work trips to predetermined locations. Students will be introduced to the selected site, its history and geological distinctiveness in theory classes. By studying photographs of authors who have worked on the site, students will gain a theoretical basis for their subsequent work. The practical camp will take place in the pre-spring period. The aim is to capitalize on all the knowledge and skills acquired in the courses related to classical photography, experimenting within the framework of previous experience with all the techniques and processes of photographic imaging.

The main themes

1/ introduction to the specifics of the locations depicted - examples of processing, natural and historical specifics - sources of inspiration

2-3/ introduction to the chosen location, using photographs, film, texts and maps. Choice of a thematic focus or specification of the interest of individual students for the treatment of the site. Choosing the appropriate technology that would best suit the chosen concept

4-9/ Targeted work at the site, dividing into creative groups and making maximum economic use of technology, materials and transport. Formation of a special group for the wet collodion process. Intensive joint consultation and discussion - joint search for solutions to problems, presentation of individual work at the site.

10/ Consultation of the defined deliverables - proofreading.

11-12/ joint presentation, final selection of outputs, preparation for joint exhibition,
