Break the Rules
Now that campers know the rules, let’s learn how to break them. In this first section of the camp, we’ll show kids new compositional rules and how to master their camera settings to go beyond a proper exposure.
This camp will encourage kids to continue exploring photography as a creative art. They’ll be introduced to more conceptual ideas like creating a photo essay or shooting a self portrait.
More Advanced Techniques
Now that kids know the basics, they’ll be taught even more advanced shooting techniques like how to create black and white images or how to capture silhouettes. They’ll also jump into the world of phone photography by learning some really cool, handy tricks!
