Exposed DC is always looking for ways to connect local photographers, which has proven to be more difficult and challenging this year. We look forward to connecting with you all in person one day soon, but in the meantime are excited to explore additional ways to connect virtually and share a love for photography with one another in safe and innovative ways. As such, we are excited to partner with sdotpdotmedia to present a new Instagram Live series, “People, Pixels & Prints.” Find out more about it here and save the date for our first episode on Saturday, Dec. 12 at 6 p.m.
