The Art of Every Day Photography - Point & Shoots, Polaroids & Phone Cameras Welcome


Yolonda Jones, photographic artist, envisions holding and facilitating space for VMFA distanced student participants to experience a primer in the Art of Everyday Photography. She will conduct the session in three parts: guiding students through an introduction to the theory of photography as art, getting cameras (phone build-ins, DSLRs, point and shoot, Polaroids—whatever’s available) into the hands of budding artists to explore photography in practice; and finally exposing student creatives to the process of constructive critiquing as offered by their peers. She will briefly discuss and showcase some of her own work before engaging the group in a demonstrative conversation around terms like composition, light, shadow, the rule of thirds, mood and storytelling.  Please bring your camera to class.  This program has been organized by the Virginia Museum of fine Arts and is supported, in part, by the Paul Mellon Endowment and the Jean Stafford Camp Memorial Fund.
