Basics of Photography with Khaula Jamil
This one day workshop is designed for amateurs in photography or hobbyists who are looking to improve their art of taking pictures. It doesn’t matter what kind of a camera you own, what is important is that you train your eye to see what you want to photograph so that you are able to produce good quality aesthetically appealing images. Photography is more than technical finesse- in this class you will learn how to LOOK and how to creatively capture what you see whether it is people, objects or buildings.
The day will begin at 10am with an Introduction to the basics of photography such as Light, Composition, Framing, Exposure, Depth of Field and theory of Basic Post Production tips will be given also. Towards the end of the workshop we will view the best 10 images from each participant and the floor will be open to questions about what you learnt during the day.

Storytelling With Photographs And Audio with Tewfic El Sawy
Tewfic El-Sawy will teach a multimedia class that allows its participants to concentrate on the story, rather than on the application. The purpose and aim of the class is multifaceted; it aims to show photographers how to weave their still photography into stories, how to use ambient or other recorded audio to enhance the stories, and how to use these images and audio to produce cogent photo stories under the simulation of publishing deadlines.
Part of the class’s time will be spent photographing in the field, while indoors time will be devoted to weaving the material into photo stories. Most of the software for this workshop are freely available as apps.
Here’s an example of a short multimedia story produced by Tewfic during his 2016 Travel Photographer Asia’s workshop.https://youtu.be/F0EpG8AQoFU

Do I need to be a good photographer to start with?

Editing, Sequencing and Design of a Photobook with Calin Kruse
For any photographer, the recording of images is the first part of their journey with a story. The process that begins after the camera has been put down is often more challenging. The photographer is required to reflect, to speak and even to write so that their work can have a full life.
In this workshop, it is this life and afterlife that we will be concerned with. This workshop is about the creation of photobooks on the one hand, as well as about rethinking your work in the context of a photobook on the other hand. Calin will work closely with the participants in the production and presentation of a book from their own photo projects over the course of five days, focusing on design, editing, sequencing and the importance of materials in the production of photobooks.
This workshop will put emphasis on the creation of a final product but the language used in the project’s ultimate presentation to audiences will also be discussed and developed.
The workshop culminates with each participant creating a photobook dummy.
What language will it be in?
Who is this workshop target at?
This workshop is designed for photographers who have completed a project and are in the book design and editing phase. For photographers who are midway through a project, this workshop is a great exercise in thinking about the direction of your project and to get a better overall perspective of the various possibilities of putting your work together. The workshop is a great opportunity to rethink and test your book editing approach before print.
