Fête de la Musique. Photographies et éditing – Leica Akademie Suisse / 19, 20-27 Juin 2020

Ce workshop est axé autour de la Fête de la Musique en y associant la prise d’images et l’éditing photographique.

Un travail photographique s’apparente au processus de vinification : d’abord on vendange les images, autant que possible, ensuite on met en bouteille les meilleures grappes, les meilleures prises, en écartant la majorité des photos, pour parvenir à un produit équilibré, fruité et agréable. En photo, ce processus s’appelle l’« éditing ». Cet atelier explorera les diverses façons de développer un style personnel dans le storytelling, autrement dit dans la construction narrative d’un essai photographique ou d’une recherche personnelle. Didier Ruef abordera les notions de force, d’harmonie et de composition de l’image. L’objectif du workshop est de guider chaque photographe vers sa propre façon de regarder et de l’aider à créer un style personnel.

Underground Worlds – Swiss Bunkers

I just received a copy from the Underworld World documentary series produces by Phoenix Television .

Hidden beneath our feet lie extraordinary spaces, caves and tunnels. They’ve been designed and built by us as well formed by nature. But how were they created and adapted? By whom, and why? For centuries, subterranean structures have captured our imagination. Now we’re going further and deeper to unearth the stories, the mysteries and the secrets of Underground Worlds.
