The CYENS Thinker Maker Space presents a two-day photography workshop in collaboration with Silvio Rusmigo, a freelance documentary and commercial photographer based in Cyprus.
Photographing an object may feel overwhelming to some; to others it may seem like a simple and straightforward task. Within these two days, we shall navigate the nuisances that go into this art, overcoming the often confusing issue of gear, and we shall develop an understanding of how light envelops and renders different materials, shapes and textures. How a certain focal length or the placement of a single light may change what your object looks like are some of the questions we will answer. The aim of the workshop is not to focus on creative still-life, but to share the tools and knowledge I have gathered through documenting archaeological objects, to get creative in finding solutions to the participant’s own needs, be it to photograph their own work or make educated requests from photographers who will.
Creatives, interested in object photography, with basic knowledge photographic knowledge.
Cameras not a must, but would be beneficial to the participant.
