Last week I had the opportunity to not only photograph kids at camp but teach photography to them as well. Kids were grades K-7. Each morning started off with an explanation, followed by examples, followed by time for them to practice what they learned. It’s incredibly rewarding to answer their questions and help them through the class. Their varying results showed me how differently kids see the world from adults. Each day we explored something different such as studio portraits, abstract photography, still life photography and lifestyle photography. Tuesday, we covered the rule of thirds with a tic-tac-toe board and went on a photo scavenger hunt. The vast array of images and smiles on the kids’ faces taught me a thing or 2. I loved to hear the stories behind their photos, they are so creative. I very much enjoyed working with the children.
Here are some of their works from the week.
