COURSES

  Experimental Techniques 

Exploring

During this eight session course, you will be able to discover everything you need to understand experimental photography. Based on the understanding of the photosensitivity of materials, we will make an overview of its best-known techniques by respected artists from our festival. It is a theoretical-practical course designed for all those who, coming from analog or digital photography, want to get closer to experimentation and understand its diversity and fundamentals. It is prepared as a constructive route that the student can go through week by week from the pre-recorded materials that we send him, without ever feeling alone since he has the artists to unravel the technical doubts and with our chat to be able to accompany their learning.
