"Introduction to Digital Photography" WEEKEND BOOTCAMP for Teens and Tweens


This workshop is  specially designed for 10 to 17 year olds. It  takes place in two six hour sessions (plus one hour lunch) over a weekend. The emphasis is on fun and creativity...but they will also learn a few things about their cameras and how to better express themselves with their photos. One day is at the studio...and in and around the neighbourhood, and the second day we shoot (with the fall colours) at The Brickworks park, then come back to studio to edit and print .The class is lead by Len van Bruggen and an assistant is on hand as well. Outdoor 'photo scavenger hunts' and other activities make for a fun and informative environment.

Learn how to use your camera in this creative, fun and interactive photography class at Lens Work. The classes are designed to teach you the fundamentals of digital photography. Discover how to use f-stops and shutter speeds to take better photographs. We’ll also discuss composition,editing and imaginative approaches to photography to spark your creativity.

In classroom instruction is balanced with outdoor shooting for a well-rounded, fun and informative experience.
