Our Stream Stories Workshop 1: Using Photography for Storytelling
Our Stream Stories is a collection of artistic, historic, and storytelling installations gathered together in an online gallery.
About this Event
Cobb County Water System is hosting local photographer and watershed steward Anne Ledbetter as she presents a two-part workshop on how you can participate in Our Stream Stories, an online gallery that captures the personal meaning of waterways throughout the Southeast and beyond.
Anne’s Our Stream Stories gallery will capture visual interpretations motivated by each participant’s personal connection with our waterways. The primary focus of the gallery is photographic works, but other artistic mediums such as paintings and written word are invited and encouraged.
Everyone is welcome to participate. If you’re a brand new to the world of art or a professional photographer, your personal stream story has a place in the gallery. To become involved and have your stream story included in the gallery’s Grand Opening in July 2021, attend Anne’s upcoming free workshops. Attendees will learn about the project and professional photography tips as Anne helps you capture your personal stream story with the camera’s lens.

Join Anne Ledbetter as she introduces the concept of storytelling with images, how to select a topic, basic composition and design, and technical tips for photographing water and other outdoor subjects. No experience is necessary.
