Ah summer is coming and with it wonderful days of Photo Explorer Camps! I can't wait to share the joy of photography with young people and watch them explore their lives using a camera every day for two weeks this summer. I will be teaching two separate photo camps each a week long, one at Frying Pan Farm Park and the other at Oakmar. These camps are for 8-13 year olds.
Photo Explorer at Frying Pan Farm Park July 6-10 9 am to 1 pm
Photo Explorer Camp at Oak Marr July 27-31 9 am to 4 pm (includes swimming)
Campers will learn new skills while exploring their own creative talent. Topics include focusing and motion techniques, separating subjects from backgrounds, using creative modes, exposure and some editing. Campers enjoy photo scavenger hunts and taking pictures on nature walks. They will do self-portraits that tell something true about themselves and portraits that verge on fiction. And of course, they will explore the practical uses of taking photos from note taking to gathering information to showing what they know.
Campers will need to bring digital photo device/camera, snack, lunch and drink. At Oak Marr campers also bring swimsuit/towel for daily swim break.
