No matter the media, powerful photographs have roots in the "feature hunt". "Feature" photographs, though difficult to pin down in words, have been described as "the capture of an exceptional moment within a common, everyday occurrence.” In this exclusive, hands-on workshop led by award-winning Union-Tribute photojournalist James Gregg, participants will explore, study and practice what makes a successful feature photograph. Following instruction in MOPA's galleries and classrooms, participants will embark on their own feature hunt within a 3 mile radius of Balboa Park (transportation of your choice - on foot, by bike, etc). Finally, the group will reconvene for a critique of the captured images.
