Street Photographers of Washington DC Message Board › March 27th. Blossom Kite Festival: A Photographic Storytelling Workshop
I've just announced a new photography workshop on photographic storytelling, centered around Washington, DC's first ever Blossom Kite Festival on March 27th!
Spring is in the air with the National Cherry Blossom Festival’s first ever Blossom Kite Festival, including a Kite Makers Competition, Hot Tricks Showdown, and Rokkaku Battle. During the Hot Tricks Showdown, multi-line sport kite fliers will engage in a series of one-on-one competitions, aweing the crowd with amazing flight patterns timed to music. The crowd chooses the winners with the loudness of their clapping! And during the Rokkaku Battle, teams of kite fliers compete to “cut” or ground the kites of the opposing team – featuring hexagonal-shaped Rokkaku fighter kites originating from Japan.
While you may have already honed your photography skills, and you may have many terrific photos, telling a story through a series of photographs is a much different skill, and this year’s 1st ever Blossom Kite Festival promises to be a terrific opportunity to hone skills in both people photography AND storytelling.
