Seeing with the Third Eye: Intuitive Approaches to Documentary Photography
with Djamila Grossman, photographer
Saturday, September 11, 9.30 a.m. – 4.30 p.m.
Price: CHF 280.– | Registration no longer possible
Who am I and how do I see? What is my individual photographic style? How do I sharpen my perception to find out what kinds of images reflect me and my personal creativity? These are questions that are worth asking – both in photography and in life. To photograph intuitively means to temporarily put aside learned patterns and rules, to explore our own creativity. In this workshop, we are searching for our personal point of view. We get to know ourselves and our visual perception.
Because listening to your own impulses and following them makes you distinct, spontaneous, and creative. Through various exercises, we gain a deeper insight into our motivations, and find a more fluid, intuitive approach to photography. Applying this knowledge in practical terms allows us to review and adapt our ideas. We finish the day creatively enriched and with a better understanding of ourselves and our individual motives to photograph.
Please bring a camera (or phone) and a way to download photos (wifi, usb, etc.), as well as a writing pad and pen.
