Shooting from the heart

Four-day photography workshop with Panos Kasimis in Berlin, Germany.

During this workshop participants will be encouraged to a method of photography that is more empathetic and involved with the subject and the photographer’s ability to feel its pulse. To break through the limits we impose on ourselves and realise possibilities we may be blind to. To push personal limits and discover the ability to move and work outside of our comfort zone.

Daily shooting and editing, critiques and group discussions on theoretical, aesthetic and practical issues will help to represent real moments, to transform your direct emotional experience into photographs with a greater sense of honesty, within the frame of spontaneity. Questions will be asked about the work, its approach and its realization.
The purpose of this training experience is to fully identify, explore and strengthen the visual language of each participant, and define individual photographic strategies.

Although analogue photography is welcome, it is recommended to use digital. Bring a digital slide show of your project that you are working on. During the critique and photo editing sessions we will use electronic equipment, so having your own laptop is required. You should be able to download, select, make minor corrections and export the images to a portable device on your own.
