Panorama digital photography workshop with Hugin (some cameras and tripods available to share) [date changed due to studio availability]

Workshop date(s) & time(s): 
Saturday, January 30, 2010 - 14:00 - 17:45

Do you wish your digital photos felt more immersive?

With Hugin, an open source panorama stitching software, you can create a picture from the entire visible sphere around you.

We will start in Mears Park and walk around Lowertown in Saint Paul until twilight, then we will go to the Critical Eye studio annex in 262 E. 4th Street to show you how to process your series of photos into seamless surreal photos using free software.

Search Hugin on flickr for just a few examples of what is possible with just a little patience and a lot of battery life:

After we have shown you how, you can always make an appointment for studio time or come to open studio if you lack the creative space or technology to use these lessons on your own. Photo by Jessie zubiran

Twin Cities Indymedia Presents: Movement Mediamaking For the Masses

Do you want to grow radical social movements?  Do you want skills for chronicling and fighting injustice in the Twin Cities?  Do you want to add mediamaking tools to your toolbox?  Then you can be more than a citizen journalist - you can be a radical movement mediamaker.  If this could be you, then, this March: [dramatic movie voiceover voice; cut to montage] Join activists across the Twin Cities metro area in connecting movements and leveraging our power.  Three participatory class sessions will culminate in an optional fun community event at which participants can present their collective work, which will also be featured on www.tc.indymedia.org.

Because this is NOT simply a "citizen journalism" course, participants should have an interest/investment in social justice activism and a general agreement with the Indymedia mission statement and principles of unity (found below and at http://twincities.indymedia.org/page/info).

Also note that this course will go beyond completion of the final session.  We want people like you to be better equipped to continue having fun making radical media for the benefit of Twin Cities Social movements.  We want you to stay involved with telling the stories that reflect our communities.  Radical media does not bring justice by itself, but is a role all freedom fighters can and should take a turn at filling. Join us and help make it happen!

We intend for this class to be an intergenerational space committed to anti-oppression practice, including but not limited to the challenging of white supremacy, heteropatriarchy, classism, and transphobia.
