In this workshop, students learn how photographic techniques can tell a story and create different dynamics between the photographer, subject, and viewer. Students work with each other and community members to craft unique portraits that empower their subjects. Students bring their own digital camera (smartphone, point-and-shoot, or SLR) and a notepad.
