Exploring Photography for Teens — June 2022

After a couple years it was wonderful to host our Exploring Photography teen summer camp again!

Over four afternoons this week, instructor Lisa Zirbel taught our students the fundamentals of photography across both digital and traditional film mediums. Students learned how to shoot 35mm black and white film with manual SLR cameras and make enlargements from their film in our photo lab. They also had the opportunity to make studio-lit portraits, which they processed using Adobe Photoshop to make inkjet prints of their photos. They even mixed film and digital photography both by making cyanotypes using negatives printed digitally from their own images, as well as by using botanicals and expired photo paper to make lumen prints in the sun during class.

To end all of our teen camps, on the final day we pin the students’ work on the wall and invite their families for a critique session to reflect on what they learned and the challenges they faced while creating their art.

There are still slots open for our July session of this summer camp as well!

Mary Virginia Swanson & Patrick Donehue teach us about marketing photography in the 21st century

It is always a pleasure having Mary Virginia Swanson at Art Intersection. This past weekend, she and fellow consultant, Patrick Donehue gave an informative and enlightening seminar on the shifting marketplace for photographic imagery.

 

We had a full house of photographers coming from all around the country eager for advice on how to use 21st century tools to effectively get your work noticed. The Saturday evening before the seminar, photographers got together to look at each others photographs and network.

We plan to continue to help photographers navigate the often complicated and competitive world of marketing through seminars, portfolio reviews, and workshops.
