On Philly Photo Day, Friday, October 10, 2014 we invite the public to participate in a photography workshop with a Philly Photo Arts Center visiting artist. The visiting artist will engage participants in a conversation about the history of American photography, what elements to consider(such as color, composition and lighting) to take better pictures, and their photographic area of expertise (landscape, portraiture, abstraction).
Each participant will be given a camera and asked to join the artist on a ‘photo-walk’ around the area to shoot on site and let the creativity flow! At the end of the workshop, everyone will be invited for a in-depth discussion about what they think makes a photograph great, and decide which image they want to submit for Philly Photo Day 2014.
This year photographs will be displayed in a gallery exhibition in November and December, billboards through out the city and a groundbreaking inaugural outdoor exhibition in the newly revitalized Dilworth Park at City Hall in March and April of 2015.
