Take part in a pop-up photography exhibit, produced and curated by you!
The Pop-Up Photo Exhibit is a fun, hands-on photography workshop that culminates in a pop-up exhibit, curated and produced by participants. Learn about basic digital camera skills, along with a set of creative photography techniques, while producing a series of photographs exploring a collective theme.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Participants will be introduced to a set of creative photography fundamentals such as vantage points, composition, elements of design, and basic digital cameras skills. You will be invited to create a series of photographs exploring a theme of your choice. Your images will be printed on-site with the intent of mounting a pop-up photo exhibition.
This workshop is inspired by the many individuals of all ages who have participated in Diana’s community-based photo workshops across the GTA. The ubiquitous nature of photography allows for individuals of all levels of interest and skill sets to contribute to a creative initiative that can inform and enrich us all. The spontaneous, immersive, and creative impulse of any pop-up validates the efforts of all of its participants while showcasing the collective spirit accessed to create something visually interesting, beautiful, impactful, weird, fun, and engaging!
All materials are provided by the artist facilitator including digital cameras, portable printers, and all necessary elements for use during the workshop.
