Our photography courses in Florence offer the right balance between the development of artistic sensitivity and the deepening of photographic techniques. The photography course provides a basic introductory theory in class, during which topics of basic photoshooting and post-production are approached. Therefore the course is held mainly outdoors, so you can learn directly on field, “camera at hand”, the basics of exposure, sensitivity and time, alternating both static and dynamic shots, portraits, artistic photos and studies on light.
Set in Florence, this course can also help you discover the beauty of the city which, during the Renaissance, has made the imagination of Michelangelo, Galileo Galilei, Leonardo da Vinci, and many others fly. The city of the Duomo and the Ponte Vecchio, the city of the Church where Dante Alighieri first met his beloved and unreachable Beatrice. A city where the streets, churches and palaces will bring you back in time and will fascinate you, telling you the story of the powerful and famous Medici family.
Our photography courses are open to everybody. No special requirements nor enrollment in our Italian courses, are required to participate. The important thing is to have a reflex camera or a compact one (with the possibility to set manual shooting controls)
