Is your kid obsessed with taking photos? Perhaps they are an up-and-coming teen Instagrammer with tons of followers. Then this is the summer photography camp you’ve been looking for!
Taught by The Image Flow’s Constance Chu, this five-day summer photography camp is designed for young photographers, ages 11–14, who love to take pictures!
This is a great chance for your budding photographer to gain some photographic knowledge and inspirational fuel, to wow their friends and their teachers with amazing photographs when school’s back in. Inside the classroom and out, the kids will learn how to operate their cameras, and how to use the camera to create the images they want.
Participants will be introduced to various genres of photography, including abstract, still life, landscape, documentary, and portraiture—not to mention some of the great photographers of our age. Then we’ll encourage the kids to experiment with shooting in these genres in our summer photography camp, while keeping a close eye on the technical qualities of an image, such as contrast, saturation, and grain.
Each day will consist of a group photo walk around the neighborhood to help them focus on their photography goals and let them practice the new skills they’ve learned. During these photo walks, they will develop and hone their visual acuity, looking for the light, shadows, shapes, and more. Some fun places visited in the past include Downtown Mill Valley, Sycamore Park, and Critterland Pets. Students were challenged with fun assignments like making 50 different self-portraits!
