Creative Storytelling. Photozine Creation with Artistic Intervention for #streetphotolovers.
Welcome once again to another workshop given by the KörperMagazine team!
The topic we are going to deal with in this workshop is #creativestorytelling.
Storytelling is always a trending topic when we talk about photography, but when it comes to developing it or creating a project on the subject, many of us find it difficult and don't even know how to approach it.
This time, as well as learning how to generate your own photographic narrative and edit your own project in the form of a #fotozine as we did in the previous workshop, we are going to give it a narrative twist through artistic intervention, i.e. we are going to let our imagination run wild and intervene the photographs through graphics, illustrations, painting, texts, poetry, organic elements, and a long etc. that your creative capacity can offer to give a new meaning to or improve your photographic narrative. In KörperMagazine we have developed a series of very cool dynamics with which you will instantly grasp the concept.
TIMMING: IMPORTANT. This workshop will be held in two sessions! saturdays 3rd and 10th of June from 11:00 to 14:00 both days.
First session (3rd of June): STORYTELLING PRODUCTION
Starting with a talk-colloquium on the origins and development of photographic narrative (we won't go into too much detail) and with examples and techniques from the photographers who, from our point of view, work it best, we will go out into the vibrant streets of Barcelona to take photos following the dynamics we mentioned before (secret until the day of the workshop). The aim of this practice is that the storytelling concept becomes solid in your ideas, as the final objective of this first session will be to define your project, conceptualise it, layout the first ideas and, if possible, take the first photos.
*But the idea is that during the following week you will work on the photographic series you have planned. We will be at your disposal (as much as possible) throughout the week to answer any questions or help you with the photographic production.
Second session (10th of June): DESIGN AND FANZINE PRODUCTION
This day we will put the camera aside and get into craft mode. Gathered together, we will all sit down together and individually present the photographic work that has been carried out during the week (important for this session you must bring your printed photographs).
We will make an introduction about the Fanzine with its origins, development, formats, examples, etc. And let's get down to work! The Körper team will provide all the necessary material to let your imagination run wild and create your photozine based on the photographic project you have done previously.
*As in the previous session, we are developing several ways of working so that the process of building the photozine is as fluid and dynamic as possible.
MATERIAL REQUIRED: Camera or mobile phone (preferably camera always).
LOCATION: Barcelona city. We will confirm the exact location in the WhatsApp group that we will organise the days before the workshop.
TOTAL PRICE: 40€ both sessions
LANGUAGE: Spanish/English. If you are a native English speaker, it is recommended that you have the ability to understand Spanish.
THERE ARE SURPRISES! The Fanzines will be promoted through the KörperMagazine networks and the work/s that we like the most will be produced, published, promoted and distributed on our website and available for sale online, where for each sale we make, the author (you) gets a direct percentage of profits. It's time to make your work known and earn some extra money, let's make the photographic community grow!
What do we expect from this workshop?
As photographers we know perfectly well that having a project in your head, sometimes it's hard to get it off the ground, either because of embarrassment if it's portraits... or because of difficulty... or simply because of lack of motivation; and procrastination ends up becoming the axis and the construction of your project.
Having said that, we are proposing a way of working and some dynamics to show you that there are infinite photographic projects to carry out, all of them completely valid, and that even with a limited time for their production it is possible!
