Abstract Compositions: Intergenerational Digital Photography Workshop is a small group / in-person workshop designed for youth & their parents/guardians wanting to expand their photography skills together. All lens-based devices are encouraged (minus action cams) as we explore exercises in constructing abstract compositions and seeing with your camera on the streets of Kansas City. We will also cover editing your images, mobile apps, and sharing your work. All you need is your DSLR, a Digital Point & Shoot, or Camera Phone.

What do you need?
• A lens-based device - DSLR, digital point & shoot, camera phone (or tablet).
• A fully charged device OR bring additional batteries/power banks.
• A mobile phone or tablet (I will be sharing images with you the day of) to look at images and view links
• Snack, water bottle, and maybe some $$ if we pass a coffee shop

What to expect?
• Learning and making photographs with others
• Walking! We will be walking and working outside – so dress for the weather/location.
• Open discussion/group discussion. Come ready to participate, and try to fight your shyness – I mean, I’m funny but not that funny
• Walkthrough of general device settings and uses as it relates to the workshop activities (ISO, exposure, and other settings)
• We practice the buddy system, so looking out for yourself and others is important.

What not to expect?
• A hands-on overview of your camera. YouTube is an excellent place to start learning about your camera and its various functions – the manual is also handy.
• Climbing to obscene vantage points or anything that puts you or others at risk.
• Leaving the group, I mean if you need to go – that’s fine but you’re paying to work in a group.
