The Photography of Things Intensive


This course runs over a full weekend


The Photography of Things encourages students to test the boundaries of still life photography. Tutor Simone Rosenbauer challenges students to experiment with object-centred photography by developing a unique and personal visual language. 

Through demonstrations and photo-shoots participants will be introduced to working with typologies, vanitas and in situ. Utilising both studio-flash and continuous light sources, this course builds on participants existing knowledge of light to playfully explore approaches to photographing unique and mundane objects.
