Foundation Photography Course


The Foundation Course in Photography at Pathshala is a practice-based course that places emphasis on hands-on experience. The course is centered around workshops and assignments which the students complete, and that are then reviewed, and constructive criticism provided. This ongoing dialogue enables the students to refine their work, allowing them to move towards realizing their full artistic potential, as they learn practical skills, as well as developing their own visual style and voice. A wide range of photography styles are explored, including Street, Studio, Landscape and Portrait photography to name just a few, giving students the chance to experience the full spectrum of photographic styles and genres. The Foundation Course aims to develop students who embody the role of the contemporary visual media artist and communicator. In today’s digital environment, being able to work with digital darkroom and post-processing tools is almost as essential a skill as learning to frame an image, and the Foundation Course is very aware of this issue, with Digital Darkroom sessions being a core component of the course.
