Travel Photography with Megan Zink | Workshop for Charity
September 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10
Join published travel photographer & blogger Megan Zink to learn how to take memorable (and dare we say Insta-worthy) travel photos.
This workshop is ideal for any level and includes light camera/phone operation basics & technique best practices. There will be heavy focus on types of composition and tricks for finding unique angles, photo ops and more. Finally, we’ll wrap up with a Q&A session (and maybe some hilariously awkward travel stories)! Light refreshments will be served.
Cost: less than a Chipotle steak burrito with guac ($10) AND you could win our raffle prize.
Ticket sales will benefit the Cultural Kitchen & Community Expressions programs of Hostelling International Chicago, which provide horizon-broadening educational programming for Chicagoland youth.
About Hostelling International Chicago: HI Chicago is part of HI USA, a nonprofit education organization founded on an enduring belief in the power of travel to foster a deeper understanding of people, places, and the world around. HI USA promotes a dynamic community of global citizens who have the wisdom and humanity to actively make the world a better place.
About the Cultural Kitchen Program: Cultural Kitchen helps students articulate their own cultural identities while gaining a greater understanding of, and appreciation for, diverse global cultures. Participants complete several research assignments about another country’s cultural norms and then demonstrate what they learned by preparing a meal and presenting their research on the country’s culture and cultural identity to hostel guests.
About the Community Expressions Program: Community Expressions gives students the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of their community and cultural identity and consider how to make a positive impact in their neighborhood and the world at large. Participants create an original painting, dance, recitation or other artistic interpretation of their neighborhood, then prepare a meal and present their work to guests.
