Over the weekend, we welcomed professional photographer Rebecca Reuland
to the HUB. She presented a photography and Photoshop program resulting in teen-made movie posters.
First, we examined popular movie posters, how they use film stills and text to grab your attention and convey what the movie is about.
Next, we broke into groups to brainstorm supposed films and possible shots we could set up in and around the library.
Then, the fun part, we set up shots based on the genre and setting of the films. Using existing lighting, reflectors, aperture speed, and other effects, each team took multiple shots to manipulate for their movie’s posters.
After a brief tutorial on Photoshop, teens made posters for films that featured Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, killer books that come to life at the library, a ukulele wielding killer, a documentary about books, and more!
