Picture This: An All-Level Photography Workshop & Neighborhood Photo Walk

Roanoke Photography Collective | instagram.com/roaphotocollective

In this 90-minute workshop and photo walk, a Roanoke-based group of photographers will lead a 45-minute, all-level photography skill-building session in collaboration with the neighborhood. This informational session will focus on composition, light, and subject. That will be followed by a 45-minute group photo walk around the neighborhood with photographers and neighbors. The photographers will collaborate with the neighbors to develop a photo prompt based in the unique context and culture of the neighborhood. The focus will be on building community and creating connections. You may see your neighbors and neighborhood through a different lens!

Participants: Three to 30
Ages: All
Value: $500.00
Requirements: Please provide a space where neighbors can gather and hear the workshop, preferably outside pending warm weather. We would also like the neighborhood to select one or more neighbors to be “neighborhood partners” to help inform the neighborhood-specific contextual/cultural prompt and the location of the photo walk. We’ll also need a rain date–the opportunity to reschedule the event in the case of inclement weather.
