Is your child excited to continue their photography training this spring? If so, they’ll love this new digital photography workshop featuring creative photography assignments for kids, ages 11–14, to help keep them focused.
Constance Chu, our youth photography classes instructor, is offering a four-session, assignment-based kids digital photography workshop that will build on their existing skills with the camera and post-processing techniques, as well as help them to develop new ones. Students will receive a special, tailored assignment to encourage them to look at photographic situations in new ways.
This workshop is meant to be a continuation class for students who have taken one or more introductory digital photography courses. Exercises will reinforce knowledge of manual camera operations and expand on post-processing possibilities in Adobe Lightroom Classic.
Tuesday, April 16, 4–6PM: The students will be introduced to the work of several influential photographers and to the assignments they’ll be given for the next three weeks as they continue to learn photography.
Tuesday, April 30, 4–6PM: Each child’s progress will be evaluated based on the assignment they’ve chosen. Suggestions will be offered for how to further develop the composition.
Tuesday, May 14, 4–6PM: Each student’s work will be reviewed to determine how post processing using Adobe Lightroom Classic can be best applied to optimize the execution of his or her assignment. Everyone will have time to edit under the guidance of the instructor.
Tuesday, May 28, 4–6PM: This last session will focus on perfecting and completing the edits of the image chosen for submission for the assignment. The final image will be printed on Epson Premium Luster paper and taken home!
Constance Chu has a background in psychology with an emphasis in neuroscience—she began teaching college kids how to perform neurophysiology experiments at Brown University! Despite her scientific upbringing, she comes to The Flow with a rather impressive photographic pedigree. Her first digital photography course was in the fall of 2011 at the Ottawa School of Art in Canada. Not long after returning to California, she began working with Magnum photographer Jim Goldberg in San Francisco, first as an intern and then as his interim studio manager. Today, Constance focuses on teaching kids photography and shooting. Working with kids is a passion of hers and she has her own photography business that focuses on family portraiture as well as many other photographic needs including commercial, maternity, newborn, and events.
