Sept 21 - October 12, 2022
This beginner’s online program is designed to introduce kids ages 9-13 to the “superpower” photography skills used by professional photographers. They will explore how photographers across all genres use the same set of creative fundamentals to create beautiful and compelling images. The weekly sessions are scaffolded so as to encourage a deeper understanding of how they can apply and layer these skills in their own practice as burgeoning young photographers.
