Then, your organizer, Roberta will guide you through a self-discovery process — providing helpful feedback and prompting discussion around what you see (i.e. composition, color, design, and storytelling). 6:30-7:30PM In the next hour, we explore The Met on a photo hunt, one gallery at a time to piece together visual content with our smartphone cameras for a final project. 7:30PM-8:15 We gather in the members’ only lounge to reflect on our photo experience, edit our content, tweak it and discuss a final project.
