This Helsinki Cityscapes Workshop is for photo enthusiasts of all levels who want to learn how to capture the urban landscape around them. We will focus on the different aspects that contribute to the creation of an image such as the perception of color and black and white, the direction and intensity of light and shadow, composition, lines, shapes, materials, among others. We will work together in the class and on the field to develop both the technical and artistic aspects of our images in order to create a solid body of work that will be presented and reviewed during our last meeting.
Equipment needed: Camera, tripod (optional)
