In the world of images the frontiers between the media have been blurred. Many artistic disciplines have appropriated photography. Artists working today are characterized by the interdisciplinary use of techniques and an access to tools that are no longer accessible only to professionals. Today, images are the words of a new universal language of communication.
In a full digital revolution, the role of the photographer has changed: he has to emerge from his technical specialization to set himself as a specialist of the visual language. At the moment the challenge posed to professional photographers is immense and stimulating.
The Introduction to Photography One Year Course offers an immersion in the transversal knowledge of artistic and applied photography. Through dialogue with other visual languages ??such as cinema, contemporary art and video art, the course promotes the development of artists and professionals in a context that requires specialists aware of the interdisciplinary nature of their work.
Students will receive comprehensive training on contemporary visual culture, creation, aesthetics and photographic language. Throughout the course, they will learn to take photographs using all professional formats, to express themselves with natural or set light, to properly handle postproduction tools and to spread their images with new technologies. The debate between artistic thought and creation will be present throughout the training process so that students are able to build their own visual discourse.
The Introduction to Photography One Year Course belongs to the Area of Photography of the IED Madrid, a meeting point for artists and international professionals, which brings together the best of the national and international scene in this field.
