Learning outcomes of the course unit
The aim of this course is to acquire experience in landscape photography. In contrast to the Winter semester, when the work was rather individual, we will now complete instruction in a several-day excursion to a particular countryside location. Students, in theory classes, will prior be acquainted with the selected location, its history and geological characteristics. In a study of artists who have covered this location, students gain a theory basis for their subsequent work. The practical assembly will take place during early Spring. The location will be select by the end of February.
Mode of study
Students will be acquainted with possible treatments and preparations for a photographic development of an assigned location in intensive theory preparations and the implementation itself at the assembly. We will cover not only theory preparations but, also, technological procedures of more complicated situation. This covers the use of polarization filters, center-filters and various split-filters. There will be the possibility of using a robotic head for managing a panoramic shot and the like. Potential for individual completion of the project is welcomed.
