Course

ADVANCED EXPERIMENTAL PHOTOGRAPHY TECHNIQUES

Those who have been working with experimentation for some time know that there is a large number of experimental techniques and that the possibilities grow to infinity if we start mixing them! This course is an invitation to learn advanced techniques of experimental photography: from those that want to go one step beyond the basic techniques to those who want to explore the mixture of techniques. We will also be experimenting with new ways to apply and work with them, allowing your imagination to run free.

This 10-session course begins with a live conference where we can have a panoramic view of the possibilities of searching and creating new techniques from what we already know. From here, we will go through pre-recorded workshops and conferences to go deeper and open up new possibilities. The course will close with a meeting where all the created projects will be presented, never stopping the search of new possibilities to continue growing within the experimentation.
