Join us for an exciting 3-day photography workshop during the school holidays! Guided by expert tutor Thomas, kids will learn the basics of digital photography, including how to use a digital camera and techniques for capturing great images. They’ll also get hands-on experience with basic digital editing software to perfect their images.
But that’s not all! Kids will also explore the creative world of analog photography, using the power of the sun and light to make cyanotypes and photograms. They’ll learn the history of these techniques and how to create unique, beautiful prints using everyday materials.
Finally, kids will tie it all together by creating a small take-home book to show off what they’ve made. This workshop is the perfect way for kids to explore their creativity, learn new skills, and have fun during the school holidays.
All cameras and equipment provided! Kids can also bring their own camera if it’s in working order.
Suitable for 10-16 year olds.
