Street Photography (ages 11-14)
Starts July 9
Monday–Friday, July 9–13, 12–4 pm
Storefronts and alleyways; reflections and shadows; people and the mystery of life as it unfolds before us! Let’s hit the streets with our cameras! We’ll look at the pictures of a wide variety of photographers to become acquainted with formal elements of art and to discuss different ways of approaching street photography. (Do we spy? Do we ask permission?) Henri Cartier-Bresson, Berenice Abbott, Walker Evans, and Weegee are just some of the many artists that will inspire us. We’ll travel by foot and public transit to explore with our cameras.
The camp will focus on picture making, but you’ll also learn how to sort through your photograph collection in Adobe Lightroom and use basic Photoshop techniques to complete your artistic vision (iMacs provided). Objectives include learning manual camera settings, framing shots in-camera, utilizing compositional elements like lines, angle, and symmetry, an awareness of lighting effects, and basic photo editing skills. Please bring each day a digital SLR camera (with manual settings), a minimum 4GB memory card, charged battery, and at least one lens. Bus fare or a Go-To card will be needed 3 of the 5 days.
