Fine Art Photography Courses
Learn how to use Photography to Create Art
If you would like to use photography to create beautiful art pieces then this course will teach you just this. The first set of workshops (Getting Started) consist of five lessons and the second level, a further four optional workshops are available should you wish to go on and learn more techniques. Using practical "hands-on" demonstrations, all lessons are interactive and workshop orientated.
On both classes, the camera is seen as part of a creative process combined with interesting mixed media and traditional art medium techniques where you will learn to transform photography into art imagery fit for display and exhibition.
Combining traditional art techniques like oil & acrylic painting, sketching, collaging, montaging, double exposure and transfers and more, photographic mixed media pieces are created with and without digital photo editing with brilliant results.
These comprehensive workshops do not require in-depth knowledge of photography, rather it is more important that as a student, you have a desire to explore photography as an alternative creative medium within the framework of art.
Class size is limited to ensure personal attention and one-on-one instruction. Two practical sessions are taught daily, one in the morning and one in the afternoon after lunch. Students are then encouraged to practice the techniques in the studio provided for the one week class, or at home for the week by week classes for the duration of the course.
These masterclasses are completely unique and are personally taught by Martin Osner who specializes in fine art photography and they are presented at his studio in Hout Bay, Cape Town.
