Free Photography Workshop: My Kentucky – Places

Saturday October 24, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - Saturday October 31, 2020 @ 4:30 pm EDT

Scrubby, brown grass in the foreground; trees in the mid-ground; and white clouds against a blue sky in the background.

Inspired by photographer Wendy Ewald and a new documentary from Appalshop and POV called, “Portraits and Dreams,” we’re offering Kentuckians a set of workshops with the theme, “My Kentucky.”

In these virtual workshops, you will learn how to see your environments and the people around you in a new way. Discover how incorporating a sense of storytelling into your photographs can elevate your work.

    • Description: This workshop will include an illustrated discussion on the art of photography and using a camera to document our places in the world and tell our own stories. There will be camera-use instruction, including exposure and composition, and suggestions regarding different approaches to subject matter.
    • Ages: Ages 12+ (with kids under age 18 accompanied by an adult)
    • Instructor: Guy Mendes
    • Dates (workshop consists of two parts):
      • PART A: Sat., Oct. 24, 3-4:30 pm | Instruction, discussion, homework assignments
