1-Week Digital Photography Workshop

1-Week Digital Photography Workshop

FLORENCE: April 24-30, 2022
PRICE: USD $1,400 for the week

The 1-Week Digital Photography Workshop is an intensive exploration of photography in the digital age. Photography school students are immersed in the art and craft of still photography, and are introduced to the tools necessary to capture great images and refine them through digital imaging.

Photography students at New York Film Academy develop the skills necessary to research, compose, and capture digital photographic projects in a hands-on course. Students are encouraged to be creative, but are also taught to think of each project as a concise statement of artistic and aesthetic intent. They expand their repertoire of techniques with light and shadow as they work with professional lighting and grip hardware, as well as inexpensive and unconventional practical sources of light and shadow.

Central to the Academy’s photography workshops is the philosophy of learning by doing, through which students learn the craft of photography through hands-on instruction and continuous practical exercises. Every day of the workshop, students can expect to be actively shooting, editing, and assessing the images they take. The program is constructed to deliver a great deal of content in one week.

No prior experience is required to enroll in the 1-Week Digital Photography Workshop. Students are required to bring their own equipment.
