Learning outcomes
The structure of this course assumes that the students have vocational and manual skills, as well as theoretical knowledge, which they acquired in the Photography Technique course, and therefore focuses in particular on deepening theoretical knowledge and extending specific skills necessarily essential both in the challenging professional practice, and in free author's creation. In the 2nd year, the course is oriented toward the issues of studio settings, and focuses above all on explication of principal questions of studio creation logistics, such as analyzing methods of light construction and accompanying questions of primary light reality and stylized light reality, as well as the issues of studio trick photography in the sphere of table-top, e.g.: multiexposition both in analog and digital photography, blend-in montage, etc. In the course programme for the 3rd year, artistic verification of more or less used illustrative methods is significantly exposed, such as a pinhole camera, application of a liquid emulsion on various alternative carriers, Sabbatier effect, contrast-enhanced techniques - Kodalith, Polaroid transfer, Polaroid lift and other combined technologies. Training in both semesters is based on combination of theoretical introductions and following practical experiments illuminating individual technologies being examined and creative procedures. Seminar works in this course are oriented toward practical verification of acquired knowledge and their inclusion in the student's range of practical skills.
The gained capabilities constitute an encompassment and an aquirement of knowledge and experience in the given field of study, they result from a concrete annotation of the subject and are aimed at a profile´s fulfilment of the graduate of the given field of study.
