Are you a Fearless Photographer ready to go to the next level??
This is a focused camp for teens who are ready to really dig into storytelling with their camera and already have the basic experience of how to use their camera (shutter speed, iso, and aperture).
In this workshop we will view artists that have paved the way in documentary photography and learn about the process of creating our own visual photo essays. Students will be expected to explore the town of Annapolis and find their own stories to tell (with the guidance of our instructors).
What we'll be covering:
-how to become comfortable approaching strangers, building a trusting relationship with them and talking about the story ideas you have with them.
-The do's and don'ts of working in the field
-The process of developing a photo essay
-Equipment choices for different outcomes
-Creative composition and types of images
-Working with light effectively
-Choosing the final images and sequencing into an effective photo essay
-What now...what do you do with your story? How do you get it seen?
At the end of the week, each student will have at least one completed essay which we will print and have a public showing of sometime after camp wraps up.
