Learning how to snap away from one of the best

We can all take photos at anytime and anywhere with our smartphones but that doesn’t mean the images we take are what we would like to add into our collection of memories. Helping us make picture perfect photographs that we would be proud to show-off will be photographer Antonis Farmakas, who will lead a workshop from February 2.

The four-session workshop, every Friday from February 2 to 23 at 4pm until 6pm at Loukia & Michael Zampelas Art Museum in Nicosia, is ideal for over 12-years-old and for those who have just started or those who have been snapping away for years.

During the course, Farmakas will work with participants to complete a photographic project that will be completed with the skills learned along the way.

Farmakas will show how to become a specialist in using a digital camera, how to use the correct intensity, light and lenses on the camera, produce different types of photographs and apply various techniques, how to hone your attention to details and how to master the basic settings and functions of the camera so you can shoot in manual mode.

Farmakas, who is a graduate from the Kent Institute of Art and Design, has 25-years’ experience as an active artistic and commercial photographer. He is well-known for his work in advertising photography.

For this workshop, cameras will not be provided so make sure you bring your own DSLR or Mirrorless camera.
