Through a workshop about portraits, her specialty, Estela de Castro will teach how to observe light and reflect upon it, as well as how to introduce the protagonist to its environment including technical aspects such as composition or the right way to deal with the person we are going to photograph.
Photographer and teacher specialized in portrait photography, part of Estela de Castro’s personal work is strongly linked to the fight for human and animal rights. Starting in 2017, he created and directed PHES Photography Española Solidaria, a project with a social nature that, through photography, aims to help in the problem of the migratory crisis. With the experience of PHES in 2018, it created 33,293, a project that gives voice to more than 100 people displaced from their homes of 17 different nationalities using photography as a tool. 33,293 is exhibited at the Revela-t Festival (Barcelona), the Úbeda Foto Biennial (Jaén), at the CAF (Almería), at the Lens Visual Arts School (Madrid) and at the Banco Editorial space (Madrid).
Since 2014 he has a long career as a teacher being part of the training team at the Efti School of Photography, the Lens Visual Arts School and with the TAI University Center of Arts in Madrid. He teaches numerous portrait workshops nationwide.
A practical photo session will be held in which we can work portraits with a model. They will take the necessary time when shooting, taking care of the light first, followed by the composition and finally, they will pay special attention to the placement of the body of the portrayed person and how to direct him, fundamental elements to be able to make a portrait.
Each student who attends the workshop will have time to create an image, in which Estela de Castro will guide them at all times. For this, it is essential to bring the camera and know how to use it in manual mode.
