Photography knowledge is mandatory and the three months Preparatory Course for Cinematography broadly deals with Digital Photography and this is very essential to take you to the next level "DIGITAL CINEMATOGRAPHY". (Six Months Course in Cinematography from August 2021)
As a Cinematographer you should have a good artistic eye for photography, or in other words, being able to frame shots and recognize good shots, as any photographer would. Knowing the technical basics of photography -how to make lighting work to your advantage, how to use lenses, and how exposures work and specific photography equipment and techniques.
Keeping up with ever-changing advances in Imaging technology and knowing when to shift to or drop in new technology.
The Three months foundation course will broadly deal with:
The foundation course, an opportunity to aspiring candidates who have a passion and desire for photography, to gain a deeper appreciation of one's creativity, explore effective avenues of Photography, discover and develop skills for better image projection, tricks and techniques of effective photography. The course is designed for a wide range of audience ranging from individuals with interests in Photography for any professional willing to explore what goes into the creation of beautiful images, Heritage images. You will receive an in-depth study of composition; concepts and techniques, helping you create and capture your creative vision through your lens. We will review everything from equipment and exposure settings, to how to find those stunning places and "work" a scene. During the course we will cover all aspects of Storytelling, landscape, Heritage, street photography, Portfolio and a lot more.
The Philosophy behind the course has been to awaken the creative personality hidden in many people who have not had the opportunity to explore Photography/ Cinematography as a career. These are people who love taking pictures but have been baffled by the technologies involved in digital Photography/Cinematography, or those who are inspired by the beauty of what they see but are frustrated that they cannot transform that experience into a great picture. The course is meant to guide such people and give them a start in the right direction.
On successful completion of the foundation course, you will continue to learn CINEMATOGRAPHY commencing August 2021.
