During the whole photography course we will spend a lot of time to take photos from the first day of the morning exploiting every little light change on the landscape and architectures. We will visit and we will take photos of little and old village too, trying to to develop the photographer ability with natural light, with shades and trying to develop the sense of composition.

The last day we will spend part of our time to examine the works made during the course with a final analysis of them.

At the end, there will be a projection of the teacher's works.

During the final analysis, the partecipants who use digital camera, have to bring their personal-computer and the respective softwar for optimization of the images.

It is possible to develop the slides or films directly on the spot – in a professional photographic laboratory, at the extra price of 8,00 euros for one roll.
