Free Photography Workshop

A B O U T
This workshop will be split up into four parts: an initial discussion, photography walk, editing session and a final critique.
We'll cover what it means to be a photographer today in comparison to the past and introduce the foundational principles of photography. Each student will select a theme for the day to help focus his or her practice.
Photography Walk, 11-12:30pm
During our walk, students will photograph objects or people around the city relating to their topic. They'll have a chance to apply the concepts learned in our discussion without getting overwhelmed. Students are encouraged to ask questions and work with each other. Make sure to dress warmly!
This break will give students a chance to distance themselves from their photos and come back with a fresh perspective. Please bring a lunch with you or some cash for pizza.
Editing Session, 1-1:45pm
Students will learn how to select their best images, and discover their personal "why" behind their selections. This is a crucial step that will give them a better understanding as to what it is they like and dislike about their images. We'll also introduce editing techniques and finalize the photos.
Students will present their collections to the rest of the group, and we'll share insights about the photos and the workshop as a whole.
This workshop is open for ages 9-16 with a maximum of 15 participants. No previous photography experience is necessary, but experienced photographers are welcome as well! Please bring a smartphone with a camera (point-and-shoot or DSLR cameras are optional).
