Here is a nice little piece of news for all those who want to learn
more about photography...

MASHRABIA ART GALLERY and V?ronique Audergon



"For a long while, we believed that to be a photographer we just
needed a camera, a lens, and some chemicals. But we rapidly came out
of the illusion? Like the musician, the painter or the sculptor, the
photographer needs two essential qualities: experience and feeling."
Ernest LACAN, "Esquisses Photographiques" - 1856.

Mastering a few basic and simple rules is essential to be able
to "forget" them and concentrate on new possibilities. Photography
is a magic world and our idea is to show the participants how vast
this world is and hopefully we could open new doors together.

To understand how the camera works and controls the light, three
magic words:
Film + Speed + Aperture
What is it? How does it work? How do they interact with each other?
What is the depth of field? How can you photograph movement? Or
freeze it? ? ? ?

BASICSWednesday - October 8, 2003 - From 6pm to 9pm
(Flexible time)
The basic theory will be explained through
pictures and examples

PRACTICESaturday - October 11, 2003 - From 10am to
Together outdoors shooting as a follow-up to
what was previously discussed

EVALUATIONMonday - October 13, 2003 - From 6pm to 9pm
Evaluation and discussion around the photos
of the participants

The workshop is essentially based on discussions and practice rather
than theory.
The fundamentals of the course will be explained at first and then
the expectations and questions of the participants will be a guide
to the course. Through different exercises, they will be encouraged
to discover, feel and experience the subject by themselves.

Since we will not talk about digital photography, it is a must that
the participants work with a "traditional" camera, not a digital
one. To be able to assimilate the course properly, they should work
with an SLR (Single Lens Reflex) camera, with a manual position. No
point-and-shoot camera!

* V?ronique Audergon, a professional photographer for the past 15
years and living in Egypt since 1995
