Photography Camp for ages 11-15
M-F 12-4
June 5-9, 12-4pm

The cost is $220.


Join Ms. Jenny Bell for discovering the Art of Photography this Summer. Tweens and teens will learn the craft of photography with a combination of basic camera instruction and composition techniques, along with daily location shoots. After drop off, each day will start in the field with a lunch and learn, followed by an assignment. We will then take photos exploring daily themes--perspective, shadows & reflections, abstracts & textures, motion, botanicals, sense of place, etc. Towards the end of the day we will return to the gallery for a group lesson and critique each other’s images, as we build on what we have learned.


Please bring a lunch and water bottle daily. Dress in comfortable clothing and shoes and wear sunscreen. Also bring backpack or tote bag, digital camera (DSLR preferred), and snack.


Maximum 6 students per week.


Jenny Bell is a fine artist and elementary school teacher, who lives in Dunwoody, GA with her husband and three sons.
