How to use different types of images and videos to tell a story about forestry, climate change, deforestation, restoration and related issues? This masterclass offers an introduction to photography and video to carry out projects that narrate what is happening in our forests and the people behind them.
On the technical side, this Masterclass will address recommendations on what to keep in mind in terms of light and equipment to be able to obtain better and different types of images. Getting to know the subject and the issue you wish to explain through photography is essential. This Masterclass will provide tips on location scouting and on feeling comfortable with the people you want to appear in your photo/video project.
You will also learn the basics on how to record video in the forest and to take advantage of the changing light and the sound of nature. You will receive tips on how to solve any issues either by working by yourself or with a team.
The Masterclass will give examples which can serve as a starting point on how to carry out a multi-media project that focuses on anything relevant to you, such as local agrifood systems, innovative methodologies, or even shooting your very own project from the field!
