Develop technical and aesthetic skills in photography using digital cameras!
The history of photography is filled with photographers using what they have and finding creative solutions to challenging situations. Join us for Photography Workshop virtually this summer. Photography is a wonderful creative tool to work digitally and independently. This summer we will use the camera to find new ways of seeing and reflecting personal experience.
The Photography Workshop’s focus is on camera techniques, the use of computer software for enhancing images and refining editing techniques to share your personal vision. Learn about issues in contemporary photography such as how to talk about your work and organize digital files.
Both experienced and inexperienced photographers are welcome. Program instructors will help students build a digital portfolio and offer constructive critiques. Students present a virtual exhibition of their work.
Students will receive live instruction from experienced photographers and educators, which will include group discussions as well as one-on-one meetings with instructors; developing a digital portfolio/website which can be used in college applications; virtual Neuberger Museum visit, and activities that can be completed at home.
This program will allow students to meet other creative teens and share their work, all while improving their photography and digital communication skills.
