Photography Camp is an opportunity for participants to learn the basics of digital photography through daily demonstrations and hands-on sessions where they will learn the basics of camera operation, composition, lighting and seeing with an artistic eye. Each day they will shoot photos around the church campus using the information they have been presented.  Similar to the photography segment of Art Camp, Photography Camp is a much more detailed and concentrated photography experience.  Camp will conclude with an exhibition of student work.  Participants should bring their own digital camera to use at camp.  If you do not have a camera, let us know and we will provide one for you to borrow.  Memory cards will be provided for each camper to use and keep.

Instructor Stan Lynch has a Master’s Degree in Art Education and has worked as a professional photographer and teacher.  He has been our photography instructor for Art Camp since it’s inception 5 years ago.
