Digital Photography for Kids
Calling all kids ages 11 – 14 with a passion for photography! The Image Flow’s Constance Chu will lead a group of aspiring young photographers on a fun and challenging journey of photographic exploration and learning.

In Digital Photography for Kids, students will be exposed to the phenomenal work of photographers like Annie Leibovitz, Robert Frank, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Steve McCurry, as well as amazing young photographers like Ryan Parrilla and Zev Hoover.

Looking at the work of great photographers helps new students understand the various aspects of a photograph. What is contrast? Is there a difference between vibrance and saturation? What is depth of field and how can it be controlled?

During this six-session workshop, participants will learn to:

Set up a basic photographic workflow that they can continue to use long after the workshop is finished: Capture, transfer, post-process, and print
Operate their cameras on manual mode and come to understand how manual operation of their cameras results in greater creative control
Develop their photographs using Lightroom

Practice will be a major component of this workshop as Constance leads the group on daily, guided photo walks around the neighborhood. Some fun places visited in the past include Critterland Pets, Sycamore Park, and Mill Valley Music. Upon return on each class day, the group will learn how to enhance their photos through the use of Lightroom.

Oh, and did we mention the best part? Students get to choose an image taken during the workshop that will be printed as an 11 x 17-inch print on The Image Flow’s exhibition-quality digital printers to take home!
