The Citrus County Historical Society, Citrus Cultural Alliance and photographer Rebecca Pujals-Jones will present the first Neighborhood Snapshots photography program at the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum.
The second Thursday of every month through December 2019, 10 a.m. to noon, is an opportunity to delve in the history of Citrus County while participating in a fun, skill-building photography workshop. The sessions begin May 9 at the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum, 1 Courthouse Square, Inverness.
All residents and visitors of Citrus County are welcome to bring in their photographs from “Back Then” (between 1850 to 1970) of Citrus County buildings, parks, beaches, monuments, landmarks, events, festivals, parades, farms, factories, facilities, people and places.
The Historical Society will digitize the images for free and add them to the photographic archives for future generations to enjoy.
You keep the original photographs.
Activities include sharing historic photos for group discussion, digital and darkroom photo development/printing, learning preservation and archiving techniques for photographs, photo walks and field trips throughout the county, and participants will be invited to share their artwork in a new exhibit at the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum in 2020.
Each two-hour session is $25 and includes professional instruction, access to Historical Society photo archives and darkroom, and supplies for printing. Sessions are intended for all skill levels. Participants must be at least 18 years old.
Space is limited to 10 participants per session, so registration by the first of each month is strongly encouraged. Sign-up for all eight sessions and get a 10% discount on registration fees. Each additional session will provide opportunities to build photography skills and practice new and old techniques.
