What makes a photo successful? What optical means does a photographer use to create an image that provokes the viewer’s interest? Success lies in a combination of various elements and their organization in an effective synthesis. In the workshop, the writer Yiannis Rizomarkos will analyze the concepts and rules that determine the dynamic composition in photography and provide practical guidance on how to apply them to the shot.
The seminar will take place at the Lavrion Technological and Cultural Park and its industrial environment, which includes buildings, galleries, machinery, production lines and is framed by a special natural landscape. The instructor will commission work designed to improve their skills in composition and capabilities to enhance the content of their image. Participants will learn in practice how lines, shapes, light are the means of their creative expression and how concepts such as balance, symmetry, depth, perspective affect the final result. The workshop is completed the next day at the school, with the presentation and critical analysis of the resulting images as well as with references to works of recognized photographers that will motivate and inspire the participants.
The course is aimed at those who are already familiar with the basic functions of the camera.
