Holocaust Memorial

Miami Holocaust Memorial


Miami Holocaust Memorial

To remember the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust, Miami opened its very own Holocaust Memorial in 1990 led by a committee of survivors.  Now the committee is working hard to protect the Memorial and provide educational and cultural information to accompany the sculptures and structures.  Join your Digital Photo Academy instructor Tim Wheeler as you and your camera preserve the memory and the history of those who are unable to do it themselves.

At the Holocaust Memorial, you will photograph a variety of subjects, from artwork to architecture, from water to flora, and from walkways to hallways.  Capture the reflection of the Sculpture of Love and Anguish in the pool, create life-like images of the bronze statues, and show streams of light sneaking into dark hallways.

Photographing with Tim will give you the unique opportunity to learn new techniques from a professional and apply them out in the field.  Learn how to manipulate your depth of field to sharpen the face of a statue while blurring the background, apply the rule of thirds to fill your viewfinder with reflections of sculptures or walkways, and learn how to naturally frame your image with an archway or palm tree.

We will meet by the statue of the hand, the Sculpture of Love and Anguish, inside of the Holocaust Memorial, Miami, FL.  Please bring your DSLR or another type of digital camera that you use, a fully-charged battery, and the equipment that you can carry.  You should dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.
