Who are you, really? Las Fotos Project’s teen photographers welcome you to bring your full self and join this interactive self-portrait making workshop. Inspired by our Esta Soy Yo exhibition, this workshop will focus on illuminating your individuality and creativity through photography. You’ll learn the ins and outs of portrait photography, how to work with props and lights, and tips for editing your photos–all of which you can do with your phone! Remember to bring a thing or two that speaks to who you are and we’ll show you how to do the rest. The workshop will feature six (6) stations highlighting various DIY and smartphone self-portraiture techniques. This workshop is intended for a youth-only audience, ages 11-18.
