Workshop – Better Photography for Picture Takers - It’s been almost three years since two historical photographers Sharon Farmer and George Tolbert conducted a photography workshop at the Alexandria Black History Museum. Farmer, the first African American Director of White House Photography, and Tolbert, the first African American official U.S. Senate photographer, will reveal some of their creative techniques followed by an invitation to participants to share their photographs on a movie screen for expert suggestions on how to make their images taken from cell phones to traditional cameras more compelling.
