Day 1 - 9:30 am Introduction to Cameras
Teacher, Jamie, a photographer herself, brought groups of kids outside to learn about photography so they could document their water journey. First, she introduced them to the idea of composing a picture with cardboard frames that they could hold up in front of them like a camera. This is a good way to explore the importance of the vision of the photographer without distraction from the camera itself. This was fun, but the kids were excited to get on to the "real cameras." Jamie pointed out the very basic controls and then the kids got to practice taking pictures, zooming in and out, and reviewing their shots. Now they'll be ready for the big trip.
