The workshop is split into two equally important components. The spontaneous and creative act of shooting and the project oriented, intuitive editing.
First Day – Sunday March 16th 16:00-21:00
Place: Bookseller Railowsky
The first half of the afternoon will begin with reviewing each participant’s portfolio of previous work. We will use this review as a starting off point to get to know each other better and for a larger discussion about various photographic concerns.
The second half will consists of brief lectures given by Marcelo and Zisis on the various facets of street photography, the basic grammar and objectives of travel photography and how to accomplish a specific assignment. The lectures will be followed by Q&A from all participants, where you can raise all issues of particular interest.
Before the end of our first meeting, you will choose by yourself a working assignment to be completed during the consequent three days of the workshop. The assignment will be based on your personal needs and can focus in any genre you prefer, be it street, travel, portraiture, urban landscape etc.
Second, Third and Fourth Day
Monday 17th to Wednesday 19th
These are full schedule shooting days, from early morning to late night and it’s on the discretion of each participant how to best exploit his/her time. Zisis and Marcello will shoot in pairs with different participants every day and for the rest of your time, we advise you to work in pairs with a fellow photographer.
But this is entirely up to you and depending on the peculiarities of your chosen assignment.
Because these days are the core of the fiesta, with many different and spectacular events happening throughout the day and night and the streets and piazzas flooded with people, we should make the most of it by being out and shooting most of the time. However, we will plan brief evening meetings in the
workshop space where we can critique as a group each photographer’s ongoing work. Throughout the workshop, we will
try to build a coherent set of images for each photographer that will begin to represent his or her photographic stance or attitude toward the fiesta, the city of Valencia or whatever else you have decide to work on.
Fifth Day – Thursday 20th 11:00-15:00 & 18:00-22:00
Place: Bookseller Railowsky
The last day of the workshop will be devoted entirely on reviewing, editing and sequencing the work you shot on the previous days. We will show you the basic workflow in Lightroom and how quickly and effectively edit and sort your photos to create sets with visual/narrative cohesion and serve the prevailing idea of your assignment. You will receive by Marcelo and Zisis a direct, honest and constructive critique of your work and you will learn how to be the most austere critic of your work.
We will try to track down great stand-alone pictures from the sum of your work, but also we will spot the images that better serve the assignment’s objectives.
