THE MOUNTAIN LAB

WORKSHOP II : PHOTOGRAPHY - ME, MYSELF AND I 

JOJAKIM CORTIS AND ADRIAN SONDEREGGER

 

Odoo CMS - a big picture


'' Are you interested in photography? Do you want to take better photos? Then you are exactly right in our photo workshop. To understand how photography works, we have to turn back time. Together we will build a huge Camera Obscura to understand the principle of photography. Then everyone will build their own Camera Obscura and develop the images in the darkroom. You will get to know terms like "aperture" and "time" and work with them. But we also photograph with a digital SLR camera and process the images with Photoshop on the computer. Thematically it is about the self-portrait, the image of ourselves. The "Selfie" has enjoyed an almost unbelievable popularity for some years now and is considered to be the poor means of communication, especially in social media. The wonderful Swiss mountain landscape will be at our disposal as a backdrop to take aesthetic pictures. What does a picture say about me? What can be conveyed in a picture? In addition to technical issues, we will also discuss and debate questions of content in photography. ''
