DIGITAL Photography Day Camp 2018

Description

Photography is both a creative and technical art. Let us demystify some of the technical elements and help you take full control of the images you create.  We will be exploring the manual settings of your cameras and what is possible in digital post production. Learn studio lighting and natural light photography.

Students will have access to our Digital SLR cameras during the camp classes. Photography camp prices include a $100 fully refundable deposit. Equipment deposit is refunded at the completion of camp upon the return of the camera, free of damage.  

Students may bring their own camera, however, they take full responsibility for their belongings. Brick Works Academy and Staff cannot take responsibility for any damage, loss or theft of campers' belongings.
