About the course

This course goes through the whole photography workflow at a practical level: the aim is to provide a step-by-step guide for participants and show how to shoot better quality images for scientific use, whether it is for online publications, print media, presentations, or posters.

With professional photography teacher Tiina Puputti, the participants go through the photography essential elements and use them right away during the hands-on sessions. The workshop consists of four sessions (around 5 hours each), which include theoretical lectures, practical photoshoot demonstrations (≈3 hours), workshop, and image feedback (≈2 hours) with a short break included.
