This FREE photography workshop is open to veterans, their families and the community and part of a series conducted by veterans made possible by a Veterans Initiative in the Arts Grant of the California Arts Council and in partnership with Farmer Veteran Coalition.
Learn ways to define your photgraphic style while expressing your photographic passion in the creative process. From sweeping wide angle landscapes to detailed close-up images, discover your unique perspective in documenting both the raw and the beautiful.
In a positive learning atmosphere that combines lecture, group interaction, and hands-on photography, this workshop will help you define your unique photographic expression.
Bring your digital camera for the included 45-minute photo session. Participants may select a photograph from the workshop to display at the At Ease on the Farm exhibition in May.
