I want to invite each of you to send your children (who are going to be 2nd graders through 5th graders) to
Photography Camp at the Eastern Ridge School
. We are going to have so much fun exploring the meadow with our cameras.
Camp is July 7-11
from 8:30 to 3
In Vienna, VA, not far from Wolf Trap
More and more we are talking in pictures, both stills and moving. Our kids will be using photography skills in their everyday communications and education much more than we ever did. Campers will explore the outdoors with visiting professional photographer Jessica Wallach and an assistant while learning photography. Campers will learn new skills, have ample time for their own creative works and enjoy free play on our micro-farm and nature space. Some of the activities we will do include: daily nature walks, photo scavenger hunts, photographing water (dripping, moving fast, still), macro photography in the garden, bug hunt, things that change, and the way things work. General skills we will practice: telling a story, art for art sake, investigation/scientific process, using camera to take notes. Topics we will cover include: focusing, separating subject from background, stopping and capturing motion, creative modes in camera, exposure, low light photography, when to take stills and when to take video, composition and editing. Children will need to provide a digital photographic device. A digital camera is great, but an iPhone or iPad is an alternative.
