Students come in contact with the various applications of photography, realize the expressive possibilities, become familiar with the history – theory of photography, experiment, cultivate their visual perception and understand the modern photographic landscape. At the same time, through assigning exercises and critically evaluating their own shots, they evolve by creating their own image portfolio. A relevant book is provided.

How do lines, shapes, light, shadow, color compose the means of our creative expression? Students learn to use the basic elements of the image, in order to highlight the message and the conceptual essence of the photograph. At the same time, they will be provided with the appropriate criteria that will allow them to analyze their photos, develop their views and express their ideas both visually and orally. A relevant book is provided.
