Summer Camp in Orange County, photography for kids, california center digital arts

One Week Photography Summer Camps at the California Center for Digital Arts | SUMMER 2017

Photography Summer Camp in Orange County for kids and teens aged 11-17.

Introducing our new Photography Summer Camp in Orange County for kids age 11-17. This fun photography camp teaches kids how to use the elements of photography to take better shots and develop their interest in the art of digital photography. They will not only learn how to use their camera but why.  Understanding why they are adjusting the settings on their camera will make sense so they can achieve the look and feel of what they would like to create.  Different types of photography are explored such as studio and portrait photography, documentary photography, street photography, and photojournalism.

Each student will learn how to use and operate their digital camera, learn how to compose their photos, and have an introduction to Adobe Lightroom. Daily workshops include studio photography, architecture photography, street photography, techniques for posing, plus more.
