Ann Arbor Photowalk — This Saturday
Enjoy photography and exploring Ann Arbor? Join us on Saturday (June 27, 2009) for the Ann Arbor District Library’s first ever photowalk. Photowalks tend to be social events, where you can meet and learn from other local people who love taking photos. It’s also an opportunity to discover how other photographers see a scene completely differently than you — it’s mind blowing (in a “wow, that never would have occurred to me!” way).
At 10:00am the library will host a presentation and Q&A discussion with three local photographers. I will be one of the panelists, along with Leisa Thompson (Leisa Thompson Photography, Ann Arbor News) and Michael C. Myers (grainisgood on flickr, Ann Arbor Crappy Camera Club). I’m flattered to be included and happy to share what I’ve learned.
At 11:30am the actual photowalk begins. You can go in a small group, or on your own, to photograph the Ann Arbor downtown area. Since my work is predominantly portraiture, I’m going to challenge myself to primarily shoot architectural details on this photowalk. When you’re done shooting, return to the library to learn how to upload your images to the aadl.org website for all to enjoy.
