Zodiak's Movement to Image workshop is intended for dancers, professionals and enthusiasts working with dance productions, and everyone interested in photographing motion.

The course is a primer on using the camera, the basics of photography and how to shoot dance and motion. Course activities and photography assignments focus on the themes of the body and motion with professional dancers used as models. Zodiak's rehearsal sessions and motion workshops provide an excellent practice environment for many of the themes.

Participants are required to have their own camera (compact or SLR, the ability to use manual aperture/exposure settings is required). No earlier photography experience is required. The course is also suitable for participants of last year's photography course. The basics are the same, but the exercises and assignments are new.

The instructor, Johanna Tirronen, is a professional photographer with substantial experience of working with dance productions. She is a freelance photographer and a part-time lecturer at the Metropolia University of Applied Sciences. (www.kuvaunit.com)
