PM Session: 2-4pm in 4152 Undergraduate Science Bldg (USB)
Workshop format: In this workshop, Florian will guide students through developing a conservation campaign using photography. Florian will outline this campaign creation process, and then invite students to participate in this creation process. Students will drive the process by contributing ideas of images, words, and messages needed to convey the message of conservation. Bonus: If you would like some feedback from Florian about your own photography project or campaign, feel free to bring images. Time permitting, Florian will give you feedback to the group.
