¡Únete a nuestro primer taller impartido íntegramente en español! Aprovechando la amplia experiencia de Sol Aramendi enseñando a nuevos inmigrantes hispanohablantes, te invitamos a trabajar con ella y Byron Guinanzaca durante una tarde de práctica de tus habilidades fotográficas. Este taller práctico es una introducción a la fotografía digital, pero está abierto a todos los niveles. Revisaremos el concepto de configuración de cámara, exposición y composición. Además de aprender sobre la técnica, el grupo realizará una sesión fotográfica a través de DUMBO con los instructores para una sesión de fotos en vivo.

Join us for our first ever workshop taught entirely in Spanish! Drawing on Sol Aramendi’s extensive experience teaching to new, spanish-speaking immigrants, we invite you to work with her and Byron Guinanzaca, for an afternoon of practicing your photography skills. This hands-on workshop is an introduction to shooting digital photography, but is open to all levels. We will be reviewing concepts such as camera settings, exposure, and composition. In addition to learning photography techniques, the group will go for a walk in DUMBO with the instructors, for a live photo shoot.

Este es un taller donde debe traer su propia cámara. Nos encontraremos para una introducción y presentación de diapositivas en el área del taller de Photoville antes de salir para una sesión práctica guiada en Photoville y sus alrededores. El taller también incluye una sesión de cierre opcional y una crítica grupal informal, donde los estudiantes pueden compartir trabajos e ideas, y recibir comentarios de los instructores y compañeros del taller.

This is a BYOC (bring-your-own-camera) workshop that will meet for an introduction and slideshow session in the Photoville Workshop Area before heading out for a live, guided shooting session in and around Photoville. The workshop also includes an optional wrap-up session and casual group critique, where students can share work and ideas, and get feedback from instructors and workshop peers.

All workshops are FREE but require a $10 refundable deposit to reserve a space. Walk-ins welcome based on availability.

Please Register here.
