This Saturday, you have the opportunity to participate in the Photo Walk, sponsored by the Ann Arbor District Library. Here is what those nice folks have to say about it:

Bring your camera and explore Ann Arbor! Participate in our first Photowalk, which will begin in the Downtown Library Multi-Purpose Room on Saturday, June 27 from 10:00 to 11:30 am. This event is held in conjunction with the Library’s summer reading program, Local Motion – which encourages the use of local neighborhoods, gyms, recreational facilities and outdoor areas to move and explore Ann Arbor and get fit!

Downtown Library Multi-Purpose Room (lecture) 10:00 – 11:30 am

Walk Around Ann Arbor 11:30 am – ?

Photowalk is a fun way to capture photos of the beauty of Ann Arbor and then post them online for all to see!

We will begin with presentations by several local photography experts, including:

*Myra Klarman, professional photographer specializing in studio and lifestyle portraits

* Michael C. Myers, local photographer and a founding member of the Ann Arbor Crappy Camera Club

*Leisa Thompson, Ann Arbor News Staff Photographer

Learn how to take the best shots and what angles and light would produce the best results! This portion of the event will also include an introduction to the photowalk itself. You will also receive instructions for what is next.

* Following the lecture, at 11:30 am, we will go out in small groups to photograph Ann Arbor

* The results will be an online exhibit of your photos in the pictureAnnArbor collection. Staff will be available throughout the day to help you upload your photos to the site, if you need it.

This event is for all ages, adults, teens, families – all may assist. What a wonderful way to be part of a beautiful creation – help us create this new online exhibit!

The Downtown Library is located at 343 S. Fifth Avenue in Ann Arbor. For more information about this event, contact the Library at 327-4555.
