Mar 17, 2018, 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM

The Yard, Midtown Village, 21 S 11th St, Philadelphia, PA


This workshop will be split up into four parts: an initial discussion, photography walk, editing session and a final critique.

Discussion, 10-11am

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!

Lunch, 12:30-1pm

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.

Critique, 1:45-2pm

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.

Additional Info

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).
