“Hijacking Reality” – Paris Workshop with Boris Eldagsen

Paris –  Emaho Magazine in collaboration with Le Petite Espace announces our first workshop in Paris with German photographer Boris Eldagsen.

HIJACKING REALITY

What does an artist need to produce strong Staged Photography? Expensive camera equipment? Professional light? Assistants? Actors? Set designers? Make-up? No! Just a good eye, intuition and a personal understanding of one‘s subject are all you need. Having worked with photo-media for 20 years, Boris Eldagsen will give his insights into how to increase your skills in working with what you have. During the course we will learn how to enhance our creative imagination and develop strategies to break conventional rules and leave with images we may have thought were never possible.
