Trevor's 3-week Summer Photography Camp for Kids ended on Friday. It was fantastic, beyond my greatest expectations. The lessons were extremely well-done and informative, perfectly suited to the age group. The assignments were interesting and fun. It was awesome. Not only did Trevor learn a lot, but I did too. I hadn't intended on doing a second blog post about Photo Camp, but I couldn't resist sharing more of the pictures Trevor took and giving one final plug for this amazing class.
This was from a lesson about macro photography. One of Trevor's camp-mates commented that his picture would make a great screen saver. I agree.
Here's another photo Trevor shot in macro, this time at the Farmers Market. These are donut peaches. Yum!
Trevor took this next picture by our favorite library. His Photo Camp lesson from the previous day was about framing. As we were walking along this path, he asked for the camera, telling me that it would be a good picture because the plants were forming a natural frame for the lake. It's pretty awesome hearing stuff like that from a 6-year old.
A lot of time at Photo Camp was spent on portrait photography. This meant I got to pose for many, many pictures over the course of the three weeks. Trevor took this portrait after a lesson on locating open shade. Notice that the picture is vertical and my face is at a power point, two things Trevor never would have done before.
This random tumbleweed blew into our driveway the day that Trevor learned about shadows. He had fun photographing it.
Here's a second picture from the shadow assignment.
I love this picture Trevor took of our artichoke plant.
Camp ended with studio photography. The kids learned how to make their own 'studio' using foamcore board. Trevor also took pictures in my photo tent. Here are some of his favorite board games. He set those against a black background.
