Interactive Photo Workshop: The Street Walk Challenge

Description

This is an interactive photography workshop experience led by photographer Ximena Echague, which will take place in two very different neighborhoods in Brussels. The objective is to push participants out of their comfort zone and their usual topics and to be under pressure to look in a different way and capture the agreed theme in a short time span.

In this workshop, the participants will agree on a common assignment (among five themes) that should be pursued by them in the photographic shoots during the two days of work. At the end of the second day, the two best images that represent the assignment will be selected and printed to be displayed together with the main BSPF exhibition at Center Tour à Plomb.

Overview & Considerations

The workshop starts at 9 am in the morning on the first day and at 10 am in the morning on the second day.

On both days we will finish around 6 pm in the afternoon. There will be coffee breaks and a lunch break each day.

  • – Day 1 morning: Deciding the topic among the participants and establishing the rules of the challenge. Each participant is to aim at a series of a maximum of 3 photos on the selected assignment.
  • – Day 1 afternoon: Photo walks in the pedestrian area of the City Center.
  • – Day 2 morning: Photo walks in the European Quarter. 
  • – Day 2 afternoon: Review and evaluation of the three photos that each participant presents on the assignment and collective vote of the winner photos.

To participate in this workshop, no previous experience is required. Good knowledge of your camera and camera settings is however highly recommended.

The BSPF will take care of the printing costs of the selected pictures, so no extra fee will be charged to the participants.

Please consider all this before applying to the workshop.

To bring

  • – A laptop with software to edit your images.
  • – A notebook to take notes during the workshop (optional).
  • – Lots of energy and eyes wide open to capture our challenge in the streets of
    Brussels.

We will give you a map of the city with the route we will follow each day and the meeting points for those who want to separate from the group for a while (and phone numbers in case you get lost…).
