Dive into the darkroom, build your own camera, experience the joy of “old school” photography, and capture a moment forever.

Pinhole Cameras

ages 8-15 (limit 10)

Ever wonder how a camera works? In pinhole photography we not only learn how cameras work but we build our own functioning cameras! We take you into the darkroom and build off the raw basics of photography. Using common household and found materials, we build pinhole cameras and use photo chemicals to develop paper negatives, producing silver gelatin prints. Discover not only the hands-on art of “old school” film developing but also the core principles of photographic experimentation. (Period 1)

Photo-Journalism

ages 8-15 (limit 10)

A picture is worth a thousand words, so let’s tell a story!! Working in partnership with the Daily Double, kids will take pictures relating to camp news that will then be published for the whole camp to see and enjoy! We will work not only on candid photography but also on titling and captioning our photos. Photojournalists will work both on individual exhibitions and group projects. Photo experience is great, but not necessary! (Period 2)

Darkroom Photography

ages 12-15 (limit 10)

This offering is geared toward the student who has already taken a wet photography class at school or in another formal setting. We will re-introduce darkroom principals and learn more advanced print developing techniques. We develop our own negatives and work toward creating a stunning, cohesive collection of prints to exhibit on Festival Day and take home to melt the minds of unsuspecting friends and family. Important: Students must bring their own 35mm SLR film camera with film. (Period 5)
