11:00 – 16:00  |  Arp Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck
Workshop – 2-day, Registration necessary

04 Dec 2021

Subjective portraits combine the physical presence of a person with the creative gaze of a viewer. The synthesis of both elements creates photographs that are more than mere documentation. In this workshop, no predefined scenarios are implemented. The inspiration of the moment and the interaction of all participants will give rise to individual images that do not import their aesthetics from omnipresent media standards. A temporary photo studio with professional flash equipment will be set up especially for the workshop in the spacious new rooms of the Arp Labors at Rolandseck station. There will also be a large interactive screen for experiments and demonstrations. Each participant must bring their own digital camera equipment (SLR or system camera plus lenses).

Day 1: Work in the classic portrait studio setup. Design possibilities through positions, expressions, posture, camera technique, lenses and decoration are worked out together with a model.

Day 2: Use of digital tools in shooting and post-processing. Definition of the final image aesthetics in the computer. Participants can use several computers in the Arp Museum and bring their own computers. The necessary software for editing the image files, such as raw converter (Lightroom) and/or an image editing programme (e.g. Photoshop) should be installed.In the rooms of the Antiform project in Bad Honnef, the results can be presented in the context of an exhibition.

Participants: minimum 4 persons | maximum 10 persons (The maximum number of participants is based on the current Corona Control Ordinance of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.)

Costs: 70 euros per day and person | plus one-time museum entrance fee
