You will begin by getting to know Berta's work better and the things she is passionate about, such as people, balance, color and textures.

After Berta will talk about the equipment she uses, starting with the compact digital cameras and SLRs that she used in her beginnings and that taught her to see the photographed reality, until her definitive leap to analogue, in both 35mm and half format and Polaroid. In this way you will discover that each photo asks for one format or another.

Then you will attend a photo shoot with a model and you will know how Berta works. Time will run unhurriedly and you will witness how the photographer should get carried away by the situation without creating any tension and trusting in teamwork.

We will not see the images immediately but you will let them rest to take distance and, finally, make some post-production adjustments and print the final result.

What is this course's project?

It consists of making portraits based on the double meaning (literary and literal) of phrases made in English related to different colors.

Berta Vicente

A course by Berta Vicente


Berta Vicente began to photograph in a naive and carefree way when she was 14 years old. With 16 I already mastered the camera controls and learned by trial and error.

The dance is another of his great passions and the ballet dedicated 10 years of his life. Thanks to him, he learned valuable lessons such as discipline, balance or knowledge of the human body, aspects that he has incorporated into his photographs.

Among his most relevant works are the One collections, individual photographs and the first ones he made with a certain intention, and Urquinaona, dream images taken in a building full of stories to tell.

He recognizes that he is passionate about people and what happens to them. The projects that he likes the most are those that involve traveling and being in contact with people. His aesthetic intention is also very clear, a process he achieves by playing with photography in the pre, during and during the post. This, for Berta, is the most beautiful thing about being a photographer.
