Photography Workshop: Capture New Beginnings

Thu Jul 22 10:00 am - Thu Aug 5 12:00 pm PDT
Event Details
With any camera or phone, learn how to document new beginnings and transitions in this photography workshop.

Note: This is a 3-week course running on Thursday, 7/22/2021 – 8/5/2021 @ 10am-12pm PDT. Upon completed registration, your Zoom invitation will be emailed to you 7 days prior to the start time.

With hopes for renewal as we approach the Jewish new year and enter this historic moment of transition to a changed normalcy, our photo workshop focuses on how to portray new beginnings in your photographs. Explore these questions and more through photography: are there activities, people, and favorite places that you’re finally able to return to? With the easing of restrictions, what does re-emerging mean for you? What in your immediate world and community gives you hope—and what challenges and changes do you see lingering?

As part of this 3-session workshop, you’ll learn new skills as you’re guided in creating photos that are both aesthetically strong and that tell a story of renewal. Document this chapter in your life using your cell phone or camera of choice.

Your photos will be shared with the community as an online group exhibition on the AJU.
