Photography Tips for Teens
Thursday, October 21, 2021 @ 4:00 PM

Photographer and artist Tara Maxwell Stewart (theaquacanvas.com) will give tips for teens wanting to learn more about photography and how to take great photos, even with just their phones! Teens are encouraged to bring their own phone, camera, or device to get hands-on experience using the skills they learn from the photographer, but it is not required. 

This event will take place at Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve (10410 Hague Rd, Fishers, IN 46038) to inspire participants and provide a beautiful fall environment for their photos. We will meet in the parking lot at 4:00pm. It's encouraged that teens dress comfortably as we may be doing some walking. For grades 6-12. Registration required.
