Photo Workshop with Pål Hermansen
25th - 29th of June, Voss Hostel
Together with Ekstremsportveko, Pål Hermansen will be having a photo workshop during the festival. The workshop will be based at Voss Hostel downtown Voss. We´ll meet on Tuesday the 25th of June at 17:00 to get to know each other and start of with the theoretical part of the course. We will be taking photos everyday at the different sport arenas of the many spectacular sport, and during the evenings we´ll meet up to present the photos of the day and have a tutorial. On Saturday the 29th we´ll gather all loose ends and a number of photos will be put together in a portfolio and put out on Ekstremsportvekos´webpage.
The workshop is both for beginners and more experienced photographers. Guidance will be tailored to each individuals level. You need your own camera (preferably a SLR), a PC or Mac with an image editing program (Lightroom, Photoshop Elements , etc) and about 10 of your best photos. We will go through the photos and compare them to the ones you will produce during the workshop. Experience from earlier courses shows that most participants improve their skills immensely during only a few intensive days. We meet in a spectacular landscape where dedicated people meet spectacular challenges. This will form the frame for the workshop and we will try to communicate the flow of energy and adventure in exciting shots. We will adjust the course to the activities going on, and try to be at the arena of the sports that are most interesting image wise. However, if you eventually get tired of action, we will also offer a "contemplative turn". You are invited to relax the mind by walking around in a forest where the theme for the photographing would be the nature's basic language.
Photographing is to see, to observe and to sort impressions
Photography is the art, science and practice of creating images. Today photography is seen as a simple affair with a record number of people interested in the media. There are many photo courses available to teach you to use your photo gear well and take technically good pictures. If you wish to take pictures, which are not only to be memories for you, your family and friends, but will stir interest and enthusiasm from others then photography is a challenging media. We are drowned in images and at the same time the number of good photographers is increasing. To create an independent place in this myriad of impressions one needs a minimum of knowledge consciousness, and critical sense. To stay creative is a lifelong self-development process, which requires you to go deeper into yourself and become conscious of observing and interpreting the world around you to be able to communicate your own ideas and ideals. This is what we will work on during this workshop. The workshop will give insight into todays’ photographic reality and some of its theoretical background – at the same time as we make connections to the past.
The workshop is not a 9-4pm event, but will include both early mornings and late evenings. Everything from sports to concerts and other festival activities will be made into photo assignments for the participants.
