Photography Course

I have always known that I wanted to be a photographer. So before I applied for schools and figure out exactly what I wanted to study, I wanted to make sure that photography was the thing I want to do and not just a hobby. So I took a course in photography at Folk Universitetet in Stockholm.

 

It was once a week for three months. We learned all the basic about how the camera works, basics in Photoshop, and lightning. We got a few books we had to read and assignments to do for each class. We had one class in a photo studio where we photographed with professional lightning and backdrop. Here are two photographs I took in that class.

As for our final assignment, which would later be presented in an exhibition we had the opportunity to do anything we wanted to do. So I made a series of portrait photographs of my little sister Constancia. I collaborated with my older sister Jacqueline who is an make-up artist and hair stylist. I took photos of Constancia wearing different make-up and hairstyles through time. In the end I had four photographs of her in all the different styles.

The first one is 1920’s, the second 1940’s, the third 1960’s and the last 1980’s.

I really liked that course and it made me realize that photography was the subject I wanted to study. So if you are really interested in something but are not really sure you want to study it, take a course for a couple of months just to see if it is your thing.
