HackCville Member Leads Photography Workshop

HackCville’s own Ariel Kao led an insightful workshop about the basics of photography, including the exposure triangle, composition, and basic photo editing tools and tips.

This week at #9 Elliewood Avenue, UVa students of all years and skill-sets gathered to learn from HackCville’s own photography guru, Ariel Kao. During the workshop, participants learned the basics of composition, lighting, post-production, and manual camera settings. Following the workshop, participants mingled over pizza and drinks and had the opportunity speak with Ariel one-on-one to learn more about her experiences and gain valuable advice.
