Galitz School of Photography – Photography Course

This comprehensive course will enable students to acquire knowledge and skills in the field of photography while learning how to use the camera's capabilities, and also developing an artistic point of view. The course includes 12 sessions, 4 of which are outdoor sessions in different locations. The in-class sessions are held between 19:00 and 21:30 on weekdays.  The outdoor “field” sessions take place on Sunday mornings. All sessions are accompanied by presentations, and after each session the participants receive handouts of the material covered. The meetings are held in the Diamond Exchange District in Ramat-Gan, near the Tel-Aviv main train terminal, which has free parking. Lectures are given by Roie Galitz (www.galitz.co.il), photographer and school manager, along with some of the best instructors in the field of photography in Israel. The Galitz School of Photography is undoubtedly one of the best in Israel, and has been awarded excellent reviews. Among the school's graduates are hundreds of outstanding photographers, who are now active in the Israeli photography community and enjoy photographing and sharing their work.

Course Plan:

Session 1 – Basic Photography I

In the first session we will review the history of photography and learn basic photographic concepts and terminology, such as exposure, shutter, aperture, ISO and depth of field. We will familiarize ourselves with the camera's structure, the lenses and how to operate a camera.

In this session we will elaborate on the basic concepts of photography, and then go on to learn about the digital system and the differences between film and digital photography, which involves: understanding resolution and compression, white balance, dynamic range, and how to work with the characteristics of the digital system, such as RAW and histograms.  We will also study light and its different characteristics.

In this fascinating lecture we will learn how to construct an image correctly, how to lead a viewer’s eye from place to place, what the eye likes, what composition is and how to apply it in different types of photography.
