Redesigned for online delivery the ACP’s ever-popular The Photography of Things encourages students to test the boundaries of still life photography and to develop a unique and personal object-centred visual language. 

Through demonstrations and discussions, students will explore, construct and develop still life images in found scenarios and in the home studio. Utilising daylight, flash and continuous light sources, this course builds on participants existing knowledge of light to playfully explore approaches to photographing unique and mundane objects.

Lectures will introduce participants to a variety of historical and contemporary images to help illustrate a variety of approaches, compositions and styles. 

The Photography of Things is delivered at the same time on the same day over three weeks with a maximum class size of eight participants.
