Durham library hosts teen photography program

Posted June 6, 2016

Applications are due Thursday, June 9, for Durham County Library's six-day photography program for teens.

The program runs June 13 to June 18 at the Main Library, 300 N. Roxboro St. It's free, but applications are required as space is limited.

Documentary Photography: Discovering the World With Camera and Lens will be taught by Todd Tinkham, lead instructor at Full Frame Film Festival’s School of Doc, a summer filmmaking program for high school students. Students will meet from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17, with a final meeting and display of student work on June 18 from 11 a.m. to noon. The program will be in the new MakerLab @ Main.

According to a press release, teens will learn about documentary photography - its impact socially and historically and techniques to strengthen their own photography. Students will take photographs inside and outside of the library, focusing on skills such as lighting and photo editing using DSLR cameras, which will be provided.

To apply, see Faith Burns at Main Library or contact her by phone or email at 919-560-0122 or
