Digital Photo Camp - Middle School

Take photos like a pro! Students will learn the fundamentals of photography, natural and studio lighting, still life compositions, landscapes, close-ups, portraits, and special effects. 

A small class size allows individual instruction tailored to each student’s camera type, experience level, and artistic interests. This 5-day camp, taught by local fine art photographer and educator Jacqui Turner, will transform a beginning photographer into an imagemaker, and advanced students into artists.

Students will take walking trips to El Estero Lake, Del Monte Beach, Monterey Wharf, Dennis the Menace Park, and other local locations within walking distance of the Lyceum.  There will also a 30 minute paddle boat excursion on El Estero Lake.  
*This camp requires a LOT of walking.  Students should be comfortable walking for most of the day each day.  

Camera requirements: Students must have their own digital camera.  To get the most out of the camp, a  DSLR digital camera is recommended (18-55mm).  Students may use a "point and shoot" camera, but be aware there will be some discussion topics not applicable to their cameras.  iPhone or similar phone cameras are not permitted.
