Project Description

A youth-operated outdoor photo studio.

All generations love pictures, and our society loves media. Our goal is to have all of Oakland come out to interact, pose and break out of their shells. Our Youth Center staff will build the project and guide others to use. Our project is a double sided wall that works as a Backdrop for photos. One side is black, the other is white and there is a bright blue plastic backdrop that hangs over for “green screen” shots. As a “player”, you can either be the “talent” or “photographer”. Reflectors will be attached to the wall for additional lighting needs. Photographers will use their camera phones and Youth staff will show them how to properly control the lighting.
