This day-and-a-half course will alternate between theory, shooting and editing.

Participants will share their experiences and select photos before turning to little experiments and discussions on depicting the body in photography, telling stories, surprising, attesting, raising awareness, questioning, etc. The goal will be to swiftly focus on the poses, distance and expressions of those being photographed and give meaning and coherence to the choice of treatments considered.

Then, Grégoire Korganow will help them work with models (some are dancers or actors). In this fast-paced course, each participant will transcribe a choice, a desire and an idea to isolate the person photographed or create interaction with his or her immediate surroundings to precisely direct or simply accompany the model as well as to think about movement, intimacy, light, feeling, etc.

The last step will involve editing to focus on successful shots, surprises and avenues to explore.
