Youth Arts Drop-Ins

Taking Better Photos

Date: Wednesday, June 6, 2018
Location: Five Points Theatre presented by Pratt Homes and Development - 1 Dunlop Street West
Time: 4–6 pm

Do you want to create awesome pictures? As part of Barrie’s Photography Month, local photographer Ian McIntosh, will show you how, using just your smartphone or any other camera you have, you can create photographs that will go from a snapshot to something that you’ll want to show off online, and even hanging on your wall.

You’ll learn some simple rules of composition, framing and exposure that will help your photographs feel more balanced and interesting. Bring your camera/ smartphone, as you'll be doing some hands-on learning.

No experience necessary. Youth 19 and under are welcome to participate.

Monthly Youth Arts Drop-ins will take place throughout 2018. Visit this page for information about future events.
