I first met Myriam Casper at VFS, where she was my photography teacher. I soon fell in love with her pictures. For me her pictures are really strong and through some of them you can see Myriam’s rebellious personality.
I learn from Myriam that there’s a difference between pretty pictures for “wallpapers or postals” and interesting pictures that tell a story.
I took the the three day photography workshop, “Visual Storytelling” with Myriam Casper and Massimo Bassano.
I really enjoyed the workshop! A fantastic opportunity to learn from great photographers.
What I loved the most about the workshop was that I got full attention from the coaches, you get tips and feedback while you are on the shooting and also after.
The most valuable lesson I got from the workshop was to always plan what your story is going to be about, so when you are taking the pictures you know what your focus is.
Never be afraid to talk to the people you are photographing, and do some research before your shoot. Your pictures will be more interesting and you will built a connection with your subject.
I loved the workshop.
Photography is more than getting pretty pictures. Is about capturing a picture that tells a story, you can play with perspective and techniques along the way.
