Photography means writing with light. There is basically very little difference between analogue and digital photography. Analogue photography uses a camera and a roll of light-sensitive film, whereas digital photography replaces the light-sensitive film with a sensor that records light signals on a memory card. This gives digital photography the advantage that the photographer can view, check and edit the result that has been recorded.

Urban photography (also called street photography) can take many forms. These include architectural, fine art, portrait, landscape and documentary photography. Urban photography captivates the public with images of everyday life. For the connoisseurs, we will also discuss HDR, short for "high dynamic range" photography and of course work with it.

In the first lesson we will first discuss in the studio exactly how your camera works, what kind of results we want that week and how to adjust the camera for that. Then together we will make a plan for the rest of the week: going to the city center of Delft, the Delftse Hout, shooting portraits in the studio or Table Top still life!
