Be The Media! Workshop with Olivia Robinson: Digital Photography – Going off Automatic

February 11, 2007 @ 12:00 pm 5:00 pm EST

Want to know more about your digital camera? This hands-on workshop is for individuals who want to learn more about the advanced features on their digital still camera, and go off automatic. The workshop will cover using different camera modes, experimenting with exposure levels and f-stops, getting the most out of diverse lighting conditions, using the flash and basic rules of thumb for photo compositions. The workshop will be practice oriented, allowing you to learn new ideas and try them immediately. Each participant should bring a digital camera to learn about and use in class.

Olivia Robinson is a weaver and digital artist, using photography, video, inflatable sculpture, multi-media and circuitry. She currently lives in Troy, where she earned an MFA from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. While in Baltimore, she worked as a community artist-organizer, and as director and performer with Little Big Bang performance troupe, which performed at museums, galleries, raves, community festivals, and on the streets. As a resident community artist, she has worked in after school programs in Maryland and New York, and at federal prisons in Maryland and North Carolina. She recently finished a series of artist residencies in Utah and Florida in the US, and New Delhi in India.

We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media.
