NYC, NY (PRWEB) January 03, 2013
B&H Photo is pleased to host The Hopeful Story Film Festival from the Independent Film School, highlighting diversity, empowerment and human connection. The festival is comprised of over 25 short films created by filmmakers who have studied with acclaimed director, producer and screenwriter Ela Thier. Ms. Thier will present the films, and facilitate short Q&A’s with the filmmakers, following most screenings. The Film Festival is just a sample of what the photography community can experience in January, according to the 2013 monthly listing of Free Workshops and Special Events at B&H Event Space.
The New Year is all about reflection and transition—looking back and looking forward, and at the Event Space, photographers will join in doing just that. Look back at how photography was manipulated before Photoshop, with a photo walk to the remarkable show at The Met, and look to the future with Livestream Video.
At the Event Space, we toast 2013 on a positive note with The Hopeful Story Film Festival, and then answer the age-old question, "What’s in Your Camera Bag?" Will 2013 be the year photographers finally pull together a body of work?
B&H Photo is all about offering the opportunity to understand all photography options: How to get one’s work into galleries; how to go around the galleries and take work directly to the people; and how to transition personal projects into commercial jobs.
Photojournalist David Burnett will be at the Event Space to reflect on his career filled with iconic images, as well as how film can still be a viable tool in a digital age. B&H Event Space rounds out the month with a variety of approaches to portraiture, lighting and photo book design.
This January, photographers should resolve to spend more time with the B&H Photo Event Space, improving their photography.
The B&H Event Space is a leading-edge learning environment designed to educate, inspire, and cultivate a community of like-minded individuals, who aspire to be great at what they love to do.
