If you have an interest in photography and/or computers, are inquisitive and like adventure, then check out FOTOcamp. Here’s an opportunity to gain knowledge in all areas of photography, beginning with the basics of picture-taking using SLR digital cameras and progressing to state-of-the-art digital imaging, at your own rate of speed.
FOTOcamp students are grouped by their level of experience, from beginner to advanced in each of three 2-week summer sessions. Each student is issued a digital SLR Camera and while exploring lens choices, lighting, and composition of photographs you will learn about photography and digital imaging, in a fun and fact-filled environment. Sessions in the computer lab will expose you to downloading images to the computer, saving and renaming files, burning cds, and creating slide shows. Using Adobe Photoshop and Elements you will learn image adjustment techniques such as color correction, compositing images, adjustment layers and layer masks and other digital imaging technology. The computer lab is set up so that each student has access to a computer ensuring the ultimate hands-on experience. Location shooting and photographic assignments give you the opportunity to practice your skills while acquiring new images.
Please call the Centre at (561) 253-2600 for more information.
Professional photographers, along with an assistant, lead FOTOcamp participants, ages 10 to 17, in personalized, hands-on sessions, and each student receives individualized and group critiques of their work. Groups are limited to 14 participants to maximize the learning experience and ensure personal attention. Each student is issued a digital DSLR Camera and while exploring lens choices, lighting, and composition of photographs you will learn about photography and digital imaging, in a fun and fact-filled environment.
