Lazy Sunday: Bradford City Streets Photography Day

Sunday 11 April 2010, 12.00pm to 5.00pm


Bring your camera out of hibernation for this Lazy Sunday in association with Exposure Leeds and explore Bradford, socialise, share and have fun.


There'll be lots of ways to get hands on through a series of interactive photography sessions, including guided photo-walks around hidden Bradford, a creative workshop, as well as the opportunity to bring along your work and get feedback on your pictures. All are welcome to pop along and see what's happening - join us for a cup of tea and enjoy a Lazy Sunday at Impressions Gallery.

Schedule

12.30pm to 1.30pm: Photo Amble
Go out into Bradford and find out what great photos we can capture wandering the city centre. Members of Exposure Leeds will be on hand to help you to identify images, and don’t worry if you don’t want to walk the whole hour, these are fluid activities where you can merge in and out if you spot a shot. Booking advised

2.00pm to 3.00pm - Snapping the Sculpture Trail
By using the sculpture around Bradford City Centre as a focus we will see what creative photographs we can create with just ourselves and the environment we come across. As before, members of Exposure Leeds will be on hand to help you to identify images and you'll be able to slope off during the session and catch up again if something catches your eye. Booking advised.

3.00pm to 4.00pm - Creative Photography Workshop
Get hands on and play with props and scale to make fun and unusual pictures. This workshop will take place around the gallery and Centenary Square. Booking advised.
    
12.00pm to 5.00pm - Drop in Photo hub in the Studio
Throughout the day the Studio space overlooking Centenary Square will be used as a hub for all activities. As well as the opportunity to print out the photos you've taken outside, there'll be a chance to sit down and discuss any photographic issues you might be having over a cup of tea. Members of the Exposure Leeds photographic group will be on hand to assist and provide feedback on how to creatively improve your photography.
