Creating Your Vision Photography Workshop
David Lee Black Studios
The Aloft Providence Hotel
191 Dorrance Street
Providence, Rhode Island
Feb 5, 11-1pm
Meet and greet: 10:30 am
This uniquely experiential event is in an ongoing series of wonderful workshops. Together we are growing a community of supportive and talented artists of all skill levels who connect through photography and a love of art.
Creating Your Vision involves talented models interacting with the art of a unique space.
For this event, we are thrilled to return to the Aloft Providence Hotel! This innovative, untraditional atmosphere, perfectly placed within the Providence Innovation and Design District along the Providence River has gorgeous light and a funky stylish interior and courtyard. Weather permitting, we will walk across the street to the Michael Van Leeston Pedestrian Bridge with commanding views of the Providence skyline.
"As we approach Black History Month, this February we are going to celebrate the beauty, diversity, and complexity of Black culture. This month is a way to uplift and highlight those in the community not only for the color of their skin but also for the stories and experiences of those in this marginalized group. It is important to remember that February is not the only time where there should be efforts to collaborate with members of the black community to fulfill a quota of bringing "false diversity" to an often-white portfolio. This should be a learning experience for those that are not familiar with collaborating with different skin tones, hair textures, and cultures that occur in the vastly unique communities that fit under the umbrella of blackness. The models and photographers should be able to work together and offer helpful tips and tricks throughout the session. Photographers, please be open and listen to the models' critiques after the photos are taken.
Let's make this workshop an amazing production of rich culture, and expression on Sunday, February 5th from 11 - 1pm with the talented and beautiful models, Destiny Manston, Len Cabral, Sidy Maiga and his son Ira, Melanie Moore, and other special guests!"
Although this is mostly an experiential event, participants will be offered tips on composition, lighting, technical details and creating their own vision in a storytelling way. This event is open to all regardless of ability or camera gear. Even a camera phone is fine.
Free instructional handouts and refreshments are provided.
There will also be plenty of helpful guidance and suggestions to enhance your passion for artful photography.
Feel free to invite your friends, and family or share this invite!
