“In the Documentary Film Group we are going to deal with the topic of creative observation of reality. We will focus on the subjective mode of looking at people and the world through the camera. We will discover how to achieve a maximal visual effect with minimal measures and how to paint one’s own story upon the canvas of reality. For the workshop the group will be provided with Canon equipment from the EOS series, including professional cameras, video cameras and a wide range of lenses.”
