The Accademia Europea di Firenze is one of the fastest growing schools in Florence, located in the center of the historic part of the city, it is a short walk from many of Italy’s most important sights, as well as, restaurants, shops, pubs, parks, night clubs and other places. The AEF staff will welcome you and take care of any arrangements you may need to make your stay the most enjoyable and comfortable possible.
In the Photography course you will learn all about the photography equipment and the correct ones for each occasion. And you will learn all the necessary techniques to be able to express your views through your photography. During the course students will analyze and discuss a series of photographs and furthermore be able to have classes outdoors where students will be able to take their own photos and present them to the class.
This beginners course begins with the understanding the basics of photography: the camera and how it works (the light meter, aperture, shutter and film speeds) as well as the use of the darkroom (developing film, printing photographs, enlarging, techniques for correcting exposure, etc.). Progressively the students will study the techniques of composition and framing and they will analyze problems concerning film sensitivity, grain, and the use of filters and other corrective devices.
The teachers at the AEF are all highly qualified, not only as accomplished artists but great teachers as well, constantly updated in the latest teaching techniques.
Aside from regular courses our school offers a rich program of optional language and cultural activities (concerts, seminars, films, visits to museums and farms) as well as extra-curricular and recreational activities (parties, dinners, food and wine tasting, sports, etc.) which are offered every week to ensure the enjoyment and cultural fulfillment of the students.
Our students can choose from among the following types of accommodations:
