With Gina Osterloh.
Join LACE’s current artist-in-residence Gina Osterloh for a free photography and production workshop on Saturday, 22 September from 10am to 4pm. The workshop will give ten students the opportunity to work hands-on with Gina while recreating aspects of her exhibition and producing their own photo shoot. Gina will instruct participants on elements of shadow and her process of manipulating depth, dimension and flatness through aperture and camera techniques. Students will also learn about Gina’s influences and the theory behind her practice, and will receive a digital print of their work at the end of the day.
- Camera with full manual aperture capabilities (film options are acceptable but you will not be able to print on site)
- Sack lunch
- Optional object to trace.
The workshop is free and space is limited to ten. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
