March 2015 - Sometimes Adults Play Dress Up Slide Show
Sam Shaw PPSA, MPSA did a digital slide show program that he created titled "Sometimes Adults Play Dress-Up" (keep your hat on, this will be good clean fun). When we think about someone playing dress-up what comes to mind is young children, but sometimes adults play dress-up. This program will explore the difference between dressing up in a tuxedo and dressing up in a fun costume. It will be a very different, fun and interesting program.
After the show, Sam will discuss and perhaps demonstrate how he created some of the images in the show and also leave open discussions about creative photography.
