Celebrate Philly Photo Day at Frankford Branch Library

On Philly Photo Day the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center invites everyone in the city to take a photograph. Every single picture received will be printed and hung for exhibition in December in the Crane Arts Building. Some of the best pictures will be selected for exhibition on local billboards, buses and trains!

The Free Library of Philadelphia will partner with the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center to present a digital photography workshop on Philly Photo Day. You’ll learn the basic foundations of photography, such as composition, elements of art and how to use a point-and-shoot digital camera. Then you’ll go on a guided tour of the neighborhood with a professional photographer who will help you create interesting photographs out of your everyday environment. At the end of the session, you’ll select one photo to submit for the Philly Photo Day 2012 exhibition.
