Ambroise TÉZENAS

A shooting with... Ambroise Tezenas
This day and a half will mostly focus on two key concepts in photography: distance and time. The distance photographers choose from the environment around them determines their approach, framing and aesthetic compositional choices.

Time—freely chosen to capture what is seen, but also imposed on the photographer—requires adapting to various constraints within a set period. In the morning, Ambroise will discuss participants’ experience and a selection of photographs they bring before accompanying them into the field to seek locations and experiment with shooting.

Then, they will continue by focusing on an area of many contrasts where natural spaces, urban areas and abandoned buildings marked by the passage of temps are side by side. The next half a day will be devoted to selecting, editing and sometimes slightly reworking the files to single out a small group of photographs that work together.

This exciting course subtly combines exchanging ideas with the pleasure of photographing and a certain conviviality.
