Free Photography Workshop and Community Photo Exhibit
Sponsored by the City of Regina, we offered an open invitation to participate in a virtual photography workshop and community photo exhibit with local professional photographer Danielle Tocker. Danielle covered the basics of smartphone and digital SLR photography and offered information specific to winter outdoor portraits, action shots of winter play, creating an interesting composition, and more. Participants spent some time outside capturing the magic of winter in Regina. The final result is a stunning compilation of community perspectives of the 2020/2021 Regina winter and the magic they managed to capture during this difficult year.

This initiative started in early 2019 as an attempt to create a comprehensive play resource for people in Regina and has since been greatly informed and strengthened by input from the community. Please use the contact form to let me know if you have any feedback, or join the Instagram community playyqr. The goal is to create and maintain a resource that is clean, minimal, and user-friendly.
