Only 3 spots left for this date. May add another for the week of Aug 31-Sept 4, or suggest a date.

Animal lovers wanted!

BanjoAll levels welcome. This is a B&W camp that investigates ways of looking for interesting and unusual pictures of domestic animals that go beyond the snapshot. We will be reviewing famous photographs as a point of departure. Most days will be mixed with field trips and darkroom work. Field trips will include a visit to the Union Fair. Students will be encouraged to observe the animals and become sensitive to the “perfect moment” to release the shutter.

Digital Photography, ages 11-16, Aug 10-14, 2020

This is an all levels workshop that will be centered around camera handling techniques, content and composition of the image, and simple computer adjustments. This is a field trip intensive class as most demonstrations and discussions will be out on location. By student request, this years focus will be on nature and flowers. Visual exploration will address scale and perspective, tone and texture, and light and shadow.

Classroom work includes slide presentations, review and critique of work, and practicing camera functions. Students will print their favorite images.
