Walking through the city of Florence the students are invited to seek the "perfect" shoot, both under the technical and the artistical point of view, and they are trained to observe the views and details of the Renaissance city with different eyes.
On some occasions our course offers the students the possibility to realize real reportage themes in the Old Town , such as markets, monuments, people, reflections, etc. , thus discovering and stimulating the creativity in everyone.
With this course we organise "photographic trips" to the art cities of Tuscany such as Siena, Pisa, Volterra, Fiesole etc.. On these occasions, we admire the most famous historical centers of the world with the eye of the photograph, always looking for the best shoots, learning to photograph the "object d'art", modern and ancient.
For example, in one of the newer courses we decided to take a lesson in the city of Pisa ; we immediately headed to the Blue Palace, which on that occasion hosted an exhibition by the Russian painter Kandinsky; later we went to the famous Piazza dei Miracoli through the less crowded streets and squares, discovering "minor" places usually unknown to tourists, but perfect to be immortalized. Arrived in the famous square we entered the Museum "Sinopie", which preserves the preparatory drawings for the frescoes of the Duomo and the Baptistery, works of extraordinary historical and artistic interest.
Before leaving the Piazza de' Miracoli we entered the cathedral, by exercising the right shooting without flash in the darkest environments. Heading back towards the station could not miss some shots on the Keith Haring fresco, the last work of the American artist.
