FOR KIDS AGES 9 - 13
Superpowers Tips and Techniques _ Part II
Tuesdays 5:00 - 6:30 PM MST
March 1 - 22, 2022
This intermediate online program is designed to take kids ages 9-14 one step further in their exploration of the “superpower” photography skills used by award-winning photographers.
This course is ideal for kids who completed our Superpower beginner’s course (Part 1) as well as young photographers with some photography experience.
In this Part 2 course we’ll explore how photographers use light for maximum effect as it applies to all genres including nature, urban, people, and still life photography.
Kids meet each day for 90 minutes on Zoom with the KPA instructor. There will be lots of time in the class for hands-on learning of the material. They will also have the time in between sessions to complete challenges.
Both cameras and devices/cameras can be used for this course.
Here is what we will cover in
Kids will pick up where they left off in our Part 1 course and will look deeper at the various types of light and lighting that photographers use to create images of people, places and things with greater impact and mood.
In this session, kids will explore a variety of compositions techniques that go well beyond the standard rule of thirds. They'll learn more about symmetry, framing, and negative space and how they relate to a good composition.
Light & The Still Life
Here, we'll use our new lighting skills and learn how we can apply them to create extraordinary still life photos using ordinary inanimate objects found at home.
People Photography: Candid vs Posed!
What's the difference between a candid and posed shot? In this session, we'll put our lighting and composition skills to the test to create cool portraits of family members, friends and even pets!
