Digital Photography Certificate Capstone Exhibition

Pop Looking Out the Window

Digital Photo Certificate Capstone Exhibition
On View September 5-September 28

"Window into Pop's World"
by Sara Manzano-Díaz 

Reception: Wednesday, September 5, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Sara Manzano-Díaz is an attorney, photographer, and UArts Digital Photography Certificate candidate whose current project focuses on personal narrative and documentary portraiture.

Window into Pop’s World is a collection of intimate photographs depicting a 97-year-old man—the artist’s father-in-law—and his everyday experiences as he transitions into widowhood after 67 years of marriage. Dreamlike images depict time passing, witnessed through an attentive lens. Universal themes of memory, cycles, rememberance, and aging arise through penetrating photographs of one man’s daily life.

Manzano-Díaz has spent her life advocating on behalf of working class families, veterans, women, and girls. She strives to continue her advocacy by using photography as a tool for visual storytelling and social impact. Manzano-Díaz aims to empower and uplift individuals by documenting their lives and experiences. She lives and works in Philadelphia.

Exhibition is free and open to the public.

Creative Exposure: Backlighting at Liberty One Observation Deck

Liberty One

Liberty One

Explorations in Light

This photography field trip is designed to refine your understanding of manual exposure mode and its potential for creative effects. Shooting from 57 floors above the city of Philadelphia, participants will use window backlighting to experiment with silhouette and blown-out background exposure techniques. 

- Participants should have a basic understanding of camera functions and shooting in manual mode, with a desire to practice and refine skills. A tripod is required.

- The event begins with an instructor-led demo to walk through exposing for silhouette and blown out background, creating two very different effects with available light.

- Free shooting time allows participants to play with the techniques presented and touch base with the instructor for individual questions.


The field trip will be led by instructor Andrea Poulsen.

Andrea Poulsen received her BFA in Photography from University of the Arts. She currently pursues photography in styles ranging from fine art to creative documentary and portraiture. Instagram:

This trip is open to the public but space is limited. Please RSVP to with your Name and Phone #. Subject line "Photo Field Trip".
