Workshop Themes

- Combination of Flash with Ambient Night Light

Camera guidelines – what you will need

- Ideally, an SLR camera with BULB setting (digital if you want digital, film if you want film) is the best type of camera you can have if you want to really explore, or even just experiment with photography

- a basic knowledge of how to use your camera 

- a camera that can shoot at least 30 secs of long exposure shots

- a tripod (I can provide one if you don't have)

- a flash (the inbuilt camera flash or an external one if you have)

- super warm clothes if the night is cold

- enthusiasm and imagination

Please note that if heavy rain is forecast the date of this workshop will be re-arranged.

About the tutor

Eva was born in Greece. After she was awarded a Greek State Foundation scholarship she moved to UK to complete a PhD in Arts and Communication at UCA. She is a qualified teacher holding a PGCE teaching certificate from the University of Brighton. She is currently working as a fine art photographer and photography tutor. In her artistic practice she is not using the photographic medium to produce a record and a document of the world, which is what we usually expect to see in a photograph. She is using it to question the nature of photography and to cause a tension in what we are looking at. She is playing between representation and abstraction. She was selected for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2008 exhibition among numerous solo and group shows.
