WHERE: LATITUDE
WHEN: July 23rd 6-9pm
WHAT: Join LATITUDE and our July Artist in Residence Elizabeth Bick for a workshop on utilizing your iPhone as a photographic tool.

This workshop will revisit some important movements in the history of photography using hand held cameras, and discuss adapting some of these techniques and mentalities as a tool to make visual notations with our digital phones.

How can we maximize this resource, as a camera always within our reach, to continue to flex our creative muscle and learn about how we see, what we are paying attention to, and how we can adapt these visual notes in our more “serious” work?

Additionally, we will discuss social media, and how we can think of these platforms not just for business or lifestyle promotion in the traditional sense, but a way to share with an audience our visual language, as a more conscious and holistic form of self-promotion.

Please bring an iPhone or hand held device that fits in your pocket, preferably that has access to wifi or a service. Please be prepared to make pictures, and make room on your phone for approximately 50 pictures.

RSVP for this workshop by emailing emily@latitudechicago.org, or drop by for the conversation! Check out the Facebook event page.
