Fight Your Racist Camera

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Is your camera a racist? Yes! The whole history of film and video is rooted in white supremacy, even down to the settings in your camera! During this workshops we will look at the history of racism in video (particularly lighting) and learn how to fight back with F.I.S.T. (FStop, ISO, Shutter Speed, and Temperature). Learn basic lighting and camera techniques for how to best capture Black & Brown bodies on video using professional cameras and also basic skills on your phone. Bring your phones and DSLRs if you have them!
