About this Event

OUTDOOR Abstract Photography Workshop with Eva Kalpadaki

Duration 6 hours

Small group of 5 


Explore the freedom and mindfulness of photography by putting into practice some of the basic aspects of abstract photography. 

This workshop aims to encourage students to flirt with everyday life and follow a playful approach to image-making in a free, unobstructed manner, liberated from its technical restrictions. You will be challenged to go beyond your limits exploring what’s hidden behind what we normally see, reaching an edge of vision through the medium of photography.

Taking photographs can become a very creative act once we stop thinking about the ‘how to’ and truly start to look at the world with our own eyes.  And we can begin to express ourselves through a personal way of ‘seeing’. Being mindful and paying attention to unnoticeable things around us can fundamentally improve our photography skills by exploring the world and objects and investing them with greater visual significance. It will also develop and challenge our thinking about photography.

Suitable for all levels

- First Photograph – Abstract processes

By looking at and discussing the works of famous classic and contemporary photographers this session will provide you with an understanding of some historical developments of abstract photography in parallel with other photographic genres and art movements. You will be engaging in a critical discussion about them and reflecting on questions about what compositional approach it has been used, what the intentions of the photographer might be, what the images mean to you based on your own interpretation, and any other questions that might be generated by you.

I will be guiding you when needed and giving you practical tips on how to achieve your desired results by controlling your camera on manual mode or semi-automatic mode.

Feedback Time –Summing up

Looking at each other’s photographs, commenting on them in a non-judgemental environment, suggesting new ideas, reflecting on your creative process of ‘seeing differently’ and articulating it into your own words.





At the end of the workshop I will send you a handout in pdf by email


Camera guidelines

Ideally, an SLR camera (digital if you want digital, film if you want film) is the best type of camera you can have if you want to really explore, or even just experiment with photography. However, you can bring any camera you have or even a phone camera and still benefit from the abstraction workshop.



What to bring

- your camera with a fully charged battery

- a second battery but only if you have one already

-a couple of photographs (yours or by other photographers) that you think are abstract

-enthusiasm and willingness to play and enjoy the day!
