Prague UrbX 2018 Large Format Photography Workshop

I invite large format photographers from all over the world to join this visual exploration of Prague during three days in June 2018. We will work slowly together at several interesting areas and spots for photography and create imagery of urban landscapes and city life. [Prague, June 19–21, 2018]

We will visit some of the most iconic sceneries of Prague, including the Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, The Astronomical Clock and the Jewish Quarter, to mention some. 

During this workshop you will get an opportunity to challenge your own creativity and technique when working with large format camera. At the end of the workdays you can handle your exposed sheets to Analogue laboratory for processing and contact sheet printing. Or you can develop your material yourselves in their rental darkroom. We start every morning with breakfast at the hotel and go on discussing yesterday´s photos.

Level: Intermediate. You have to know the basic operation of your camera and some years of photographic experience. Basic concepts within composition should be familiar to you.

Aim

  • To create a workspace for enthusiastic large format photographers whose ambition is to improve their creative skills.
  • To inspire you to work even better with lines, light and space in photography.

What to expect: You will meet a dedicated photographer and instructor that shares all of his photographic knowledge from sunrise to sunset and beyond.
What I expect: You are an enthusiastic student that involves and shares in the group of participants. You have a genuine will to improve your artistic skills within photography.
