CJP Portrait Photography: afternoon workshops
Special workshop for CJP members (18 until 30) who love photography.

> See our current workshop programme here.

Foam offers a workshop on how to create a striking photographic portrait. This workshop will help you take even better photos of your friends and family!

Challenge yourself to think differently during the CJP portrait workshop at Foam! In this workshop, you learn all about portrait photography. To get inspired, you examine and discuss the work of professional photographers and then get to work with the camera yourself. You will improve your photos with the immediate feedback from our knowledgeable museum educators.

The CJP workshop starts with an active tour of the museum during which you will become familiar with the principles and visual elements of photography. During the workshop you and your fellow students take each other's portraits, with a focus on making conscious choices before pressing the shutter. As you shoot, the experienced museum educator will give you tips on how to improve your photos. At the end of the workshop, all results will be reviewed and discussed in the group.

This workshop will delve more deeply into the Helmut Newton exhibition.

Foam provides digital compact Olympus cameras for this workshop. You are free to use your own camera in case you prefer so. In that case, remember to bring a fully charged battery, an empty SD card and a transfer cable. The use of your own materials is at your own risk.

Please note: this workshop is in Dutch.

Foam is supported by the BankGiro Loterij, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, City of Amsterdam, Delta Lloyd, Olympus and the VandenEnde Foundation.
