Among our workshops, the most long-lived – although it did not take place every year – is that of the renowned photographer Žiga Koritnik, who is returning to Cerkno this year as well. Koritnik will introduce the participants to the world of music and portrait photography, acquaint them with the rules of conduct in front of and behind the stage, and introduce them to the attitude towards musicians, organizers, and the audience. He will teach the students about the technical requirements of photographing music events, how to find the one to publish among thousands of shots taken, computer processing and changing colour photos to black and white, etc. He will present his best works and tell how they were created, explain the added value of photographs – when they found the place inside newspapers, magazines and other print publications. This thematic part of the workshop also includes an explanation of the creation of Koritnik’s photo book Cloud Arrangers. One of the aspects that the photographer will present in the workshop will also be putting up an exhibition, as he will reveal the course of preparing an exhibition throughout its course. The participants will be connected to the photographer at all times, as he will guide them and answer questions throughout the workshop, as well as in contact with the organizer and musicians. Through practical activities at the afternoon sound rehearsals, evening concerts, and sometimes in the backstage, participants will progress to the point where they begin to think creatively and independently about their photography mission. In addition to concert photography, they will also try their hand at portrait photography, too. Nikon Slovenia will lend some cameras and lenses for the participants to facilitate their work during the festival and get to know the latest trends in photography. Participants will receive a certificate of completion of the workshop. The workshop will run from the afternoon of July 15 till the evening of July 17.

In collaboration with: Pega Association.
