Photography beyond photography, in other words when taking a picture means creating some kind of artwork, engaging techniques, imagination, creativity, forcing the photographer to interact with his/her own photos. The last appointment of the series “If I knew how to take a good pic, I would always do it” will focus on the key approaches to “artistic” photography, such as Light Painting, HDRI (High Dynamic Range Imaging), Infrared Photography and more.
The seminar will take place on Thursday 15 June in room 128-129, I floor, starting from 6.00 pm.

The event will focus on portrait, one of the most difficult types of photography. The capture of a look, a face, a situation: a "candid shot" can freeze time and emotions. The topic will be addressed through the pictures of world-renowned photographers such as Gisèle Freund, Dorothea Lange, Vivian Maier, William Hine, Sebastião Salgado and Steve McCurry.
