Central Virginia Arts (CVA) is hosting its first workshop of the new year on Saturday, February 19, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the basement of the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts (LCVA). The Street Photography workshop will be taught by Jaclyn Kolev Brown and is open to the public. The cost of this workshop is $25 for CVA members and $40 for non-members. To register for this workshop, call Debbie McClintock at (434) 394-2394.
Jaclyn is an artist, photographer and educator living in Richmond. She received a BA in Photography from the University of Hartford in 2018 and a BFA in Photography and Film from Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) in 2013. She currently teaches at VCU and works freelance.
In this workshop, Brown will show you how to capture defining moments that communicate the energy of a particular place. The workshop will begin by studying the masters of street photography, and their different methods for approaching strangers for portraits, creating strong compositions and images, and how to re-see the everyday in a new way. The time will be spent in the workshop and will go out on site as a group to photograph. After the shooting, a selection of images will be chosen and critiqued, to encourage each other in the growth of photographic skills and love for photography. All types of digital cameras and all skill levels are welcome.
