“Discovering the ancient tribe of Sanniti” is a photographic workshop focused on archaeology and architecture photography with a darkroom experience; a full immersion through a whole weekend side by side with a professional photographer, structured through a one day trip visiting the archaeological sites of Pietrabbondante, with its worship and institutional complex consisting of a theatre, a temple and two arcaded buildings on both sides, from late 2nd century BC, Vastogirardi, with its samnite sanctuary and Saepinum, an old samnite city where ancient ruins are still visible, integrated to the modern town houses walls.
This short trip across the Alto Sannio area (between Abruzzi and Molise regions of Central Italy), will let the participants develop topics related to architecture, archaeology and landscape photography, and will be followed by a darkroom session to explore film processing and B&W printing with analog and mixed analog/digital techniques.
The workshop is open to anyone interested in photography, ancient history and archaeology and to those photographers who aim to improve photographic skills on architecture, archaeology and landscape photography and traditional black and white processing and printing techniques. Topics ranging from photographic composition to use of tripods, filters and shift lenses will be addressed, with a final introduction to darkroom, film processing, and black and white printing on variable contrast photo papers.
A film camera is required for those who wish to use and process film. It is also possible to use a digital camera to produce digital printed negatives; in this case, participants must bring their own laptop computer with photo enhancing software installed (preferably Adobe Photoshop).
A wideangle Nikon shift lens is available to participants; a tripod and ND and polarizing filters are required for each participant.
The workshop will be held in English.
