About the event

Whether we're talking about portraiture, family photos, commercial photography, landscapes or more, every image tells a story; moreover, a juxtaposition of several images can compose a more complex story. In this module you will learn how to tell these stories coherently and consciously. From deepening the visual language to editing (ie selecting) the images that make up the story. In the end you will better understand how to convey emotion through the image and the privilege of paying attention to your photography.



In order to deepen the storytelling in photography, we co-opted Cornel Lazia and Ioana Moldovan. Cornel wrote his doctorate on the topic of interference and aesthetic influences between photographs and the film image, and Ioana is currently one of the most active and published photojournalists in Romania. If you're passionate about stories, you want your photos to go beyond the graphic stage and convey emotions, but you don't know exactly how to do that, come to storytelling.
