Kids Workshop aimed at 8- 14 year olds. Your child will work with a professional photographer and other students, setting up photo shoots and working across a range of subject matters to cover a range of topics from portraits, still life and macro, to wildlife and landscapes. They will learn to use their camera in artificial lighting, natural lighting and their surroundings to further their photography.
Technical and Creative aspects are covered in each module taught, with plenty of time for feedback and critiques as students are given a chance to directly engage with their instructor. We focus on practical ‘hands on’ shooting with a strong emphasis on camera handling – not sitting in a classroom learning theory. There’s intuitive instruction on lighting and composition along with everything from exposure control to white balance, from ISO settings to focus options.
Equipment Requirement: Each child must bring a SLR Camera or compact camera that has Manual capabilities. Upon request a student may borrow a camera from Radiant Image Photography, but they are limited so first to request will be given priority.
Location – get out and about photographing
Students will be taken on a short walk to a nearby park where they will participate in a scavenger hunt challenge to put into practice some of the skills they have learnt.
Each Course is run for 6 weeks, one afternoon per week.
