A participation based workshop on kinetic photography, the notorious Camera Toss technique, and the general creative process and thinking. Hosted by Ryan Gallagher, facilitated by Lorenzo "Lugo" Guasti for the Festival della Creativita (Florence Italy Oct 25th-28th).

DESCRIPTION (l'Italiano)

Camera Toss

con Ryan Gallagher of www.kineticphotography.net and cameratoss.blogspot.com

Ryan Gallgher è uno dei più famosi fotografi al mondo per quanto riguarda la fotografia cinetica e la fotografia derivata dal lancio della macchina fotografica (camera toss). Ha un sito personale e un blog molto frequentato e contenente centinaia di fantastiche foto fatte con questa tecnica. Grazia alla collaborazione tra Ryan e Lorenzo “logu” Guasti, direttore di Digiarte, si è concretizzata la possibilità di inviare Ryan a Firenze per un Workshop dove ci possa spiegare le sue tecniche. Il Festival della Creatività è senz’altro la location migliore per un evento del genere dal momento che l’attività di Ryan nasce da un istinto creativo indiscutibile: chi di noi si sognerebbe di lanciare la macchina fotografica per vederne il risultato? Pochi..

Saranno organizzati uno/due workshop all’interno del Festival per circa 20 persone a sessione.

E’ necessario che gli iscritti portino la loro macchina fotografica digitale compatta (Ryan assicura che non si romperà) e se possibile il loro portatile per eseguire la post-produzione con Photoshop o un altro programma di foto ritocco.

Il workshop è dunque destinato a persone che abbiano già una certa dimestichezza con la fotografia e con il computer. Nel caso di soprannumero saranno fatte delle selezione per decidere chi potrà partecipare agli eventi.

Thanks tossthecam.

FYI, I just corrected the name of the room/location. Still in the fortress but different space.

How about a translation?

@ clickykbd - I speak a little italian, and it looks as though they say that you (Ryan) are assuring attendees that their cameras will not break?! Really? ;-)

I didn't write that... my organizer in Florence threw the Italian version together. So i'll just blame him. ;-)

Joking of course, seriously though we will have lots of mostly safe ways to catch cameras, and are providing cameras if participants hesitate with their own.

I wish to be there as well ... but ..actually ... unfortunately ... all my wife family live in Florence ... so its a very dangerous place for me :-]

But Ryan I am sure you ll enjoy your creatività festival and the workshop ll be great!

PS
I know ..long time i dont post camera toss shots, but after that S50 accident i am very careful (anyway the camera works still ...making strange pictures, I like using it ). Sooner or later I ll post again :]

Hey Phred, nice to hear you are still out there. Regarding the workshops, one down, one to go (today). I might have a moment to throw a few of the images from yesterday in my stream, if not now definitely later.

Happy to report no one broke any cameras... lots of photos produced... and I think there was only one close call where a P&S camera bounced off the edge of the catching box and ended up on the floor... but it was fine.

My photos "of" and shot as "examples" for this event appear in my stream starting here and working backwards.

This was probably my favorite "documentation" of the event I took personally... mostly for humor value. ;-)
