I know I can count on my friends to help me out with something. In June I am going to be teaching a workshop on Photography and how it relates to Family History. You see, our Stake is putting on a Family History Fair for the CITY and I was asked to do this class for it.
I’m shaking in my socks.
I love photography. I love keeping records and recording history. But I don’t know where to start with THIS.
I have come as far as developing a title for the class. Hooray for me! It’s going to be called: “Photography: Recording History, Sharing Memories” At least I can say I’ve come that far.
Here is where I need YOUR input.
I want to pick your brains to know WHY you bother to take pictures. What are your reasons?
And second question:
I want to get an idea of what most people do with their photos, then decide how to base my lesson. Do you keep them in an album? Do you write about what is happening in the photos? Do you hang them on the wall? Are they all stored on your computer? And why do you keep them that way?
Can you help? I knew I could count on you! I’ll try posting the information from the class on here later, so all of you can glean from my wisdom (Ba ha ha ha!)
