I am very fortunate to be able to spend part of each summer sharing photography with middle school age children. The object of Level 1 is learning how to see. Maybe I should restate that, the object of camp is having fun! In the process, I am trying to teach them how to see. In return, they teach me new ways of seeing. We work on lines and grids,
reflections and perspective,
balance and scale,
color theory and repetition.
The Level 2 camp is centered around documentary photography. We travel around the Triangle, looking for similarities and differences between Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and Cary NC. We went to NCSU, UNC, and Duke; the farmer’s market, a Hindu Temple, historic sites, parks, cemeteries, museums and Krispy Kreme. The favorite site turned out to be The Free Expression Tunnel on NCSU campus.
When the temperatures reached 105, the best place was the fountain!
Summer camp is always interesting. This year the temperatures were great the first 2 weeks but it rained and got humid. The 3rd week was beautiful but recording setting hot! There’s one more week of camp in August – I wonder…..
