About the event
Love your iPhone camera, but want to snag those dreamy shots you see in Nat Geo? Experienced in digital, but curious how to navigate the world of film? We’ve got you! Let’s chat about how to get the most out of your travel photography, and make art our of your adventures!
We’ll share our tips for how to get you out of ‘auto-mode’ and how to utilize your gear to get the best pictures, including choosing lenses, picking film to use for different environments, and how to approach different types of subject matter and frame your shots. We’ll get into the differences between digital and film, and the advantages and disadvantages of each. Afterwards, we’ll do a little Q+A, and share some of our work.
This is an event for all experience levels, whether you’ve been shooting for years or you just found an old point and shoot in your grandma’s basement. We would love for more experienced folks to chime in and share their own practices—there’s always something more to learn!
Interested in sharing your knowledge? We’d love to have you participate! Shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll chat about getting you in as a presenter, or including some of your work for the Q+A portion
