Alcatraz Summer Photo Excursion
This five-session intermediate photography camp for kids ages 11 – 14 includes a shooting expedition to Alcatraz Island.
Does your kid take incredible photographs, even utilizing the camera’s manual shooting modes? Are you looking for a way to challenge your blooming photographer this summer? Look no further: Send your kid to Alcatraz with The Image Flow’s Constance Chu!
This digital photography camp is geared towards kids ages 11 – 14 who have previous photography experience and would enjoy the chance to take a guided journey of photographic discovery and experimentation and learn more advanced post-processing techniques.
This five-session camp will consist of two preparation classes in which we will review manual camera operations, shoot in the neighborhood utilizing new technical and compositional skills, and discuss the plethora of images that could be captured at, and en route to, Alcatraz Island.
The third day of camp will be a day trip to Alcatraz Island starting at the Larkspur Landing Golden Gate Ferry Terminal. We will travel to the San Francisco Ferry Building, walk to the Alcatraz ferry terminal, and take the ferry to Alcatraz for a fun and educational day of shooting. The day ends back at the Larkspur Ferry Building.
The fourth and fifth days following the Alcatraz trip will be spent editing and developing more post-processing techniques using Lightroom. Topics to be covered include retouching concepts, white balance, digital black and white processing, and use of the adjustment brush.
Finally, students will choose three images taken during the camp to print on The Image Flow’s exhibition-quality digital printers (11 x 17-inch prints) to take home.
