Safari West Photo Excursion
Safari West Photo Excursion July 22 – 26, 2019 (July 24, all day to Safari West) This five-session photography camp for kids ages 11 – 14 includes an all-day excursion to Safari West to capture amazing wildlife pictures. Does your kid appreciate the beauty of nature? Have you ever witnessed your kid stopping to notice wildlife photography? Perhaps you’ve seen your kid capturing various birds and animal photography with a mobile camera. If your answer is yes, then this may be the perfect class for your kid! We will spend the first 2 days of class learning the ins and outs of working our cameras manually and begin learning about how post-processing works using Adobe Lightroom. Constance will offer tips for how to best prepare for our Safari photography – from the types of lenses we can use to various lighting situations to adapt to as well as camera settings necessary for specific effects. On Wednesday, we will take a limousine for an hour and a half long drive to Santa Rosa’s world-class wildlife preserve . During the drive, students will experiment with panning, which is always fun and can create unique imagery that your kid will enjoy achieving! Upon our arrival at Safari West, your kid will be amazed by the collection of nearly 1000 amazing African animals from over 90 unique species. We will climb aboard a custom safari vehicle and head out on a 3-hour excursion to get up close and personal with everything from giraffes to impalas to rhinoceroses. The last two classes will be dedicated to reviewing our imagery and selecting 3 favorite photographs to process and enhance. Constance will teach your child how to manipulate everything from exposure to contrast to saturation and much more! The most satisfying part? Your kid will get to take three beautiful 11×17 prints home!
