DreamStudio is a 12-week program for teens in the Bronx to learn about creating through music production, design and digital photography. Here's where we will share photos, resources and examples of our work.

Graphic Design

Photography

Day Twelve DFlo led us into the world of dreams with some very cool extended exposure photographing techniques. In one room we used strobe lights to create ghost effects while in the hallway we did light writing with flashlights.

Portraits

Day Eleven DFlo taught the class how to take interesting portraits. We worked on framing, lighting, and getting the best out of your subject. Check out our next post to see what we made!

Students capture life at the DreamYard Art Center.

Dflo’s getting to know the class old-school style with Instax & polaroids. (You only get one shot, make it count!)

Day Ten was DreamStudio’s first class with awesome photographer and teaching artist David Flores. Students were able to experiment with polaroid and digital cameras to capture themselves and life at the DreamYard Art Center.

Student work paired with their inspiration photos.

Day 1 of Digital Photography (Day 9): Our guest teacher Hillary Kolos led the class through a mini workshop on how to take a good photo. We talked about the decisions good photographers make before taking their shots like framing, perspective, focus, and light. Hillary then told each group to pick their favorite photo to recreate somewhere in the DreamYard Art Center.
