Photography is the art of writing or drawing with light.

In the photography course, you will be introduced to many different ways to write/draw with light. You will learn about the basics of camera operation, exposure, composition, and lighting. You will also have the opportunity to experiment with different photographic genres, such as portraiture, landscape, documentary and street photography.

The photography course has a photo studio with cameras, tripods, flashlights, reflectors, and backgrounds. There is also a digital workshop with computers, image editing software (Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop), negative scanners, printers, and an analog darkroom where you can develop black and white film and enlarge and print images from your negatives.

The photography course is designed to be both challenging and rewarding. You will learn a lot about photography, both technically and creatively. You will also have the opportunity to develop your own unique style as a photographer.

Here are some of the themes you are going to work with:
Portrait – Landscape – Documentary – Light & Flash – Staged Photography and Photography & Shape

Project Weeks

The last four weeks of the semester you work on a self-defined project independently or together with others – a course where you define and formulate the framework yourself. The project weeks are a unique opportunity to go deeper into techniques, themes, movements or concepts that have already been covered in the teaching – but it is of course also possible to try out your own ideas. The project consists of idea generation, planning, description of the project and an argumentation for the content – and of course the execution of the project itself.

The last week of the project period is aimed at the semester’s final exhibition, where all lines present their works. The exhibition is a public event.

The final project is a good exercise in what it takes in terms of practical and aesthetic considerations to carry out a project from idea to finished product.
