« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Take your photographs from ordinary to extraordinary! Explore and experiment with creative techniques to make truly unique photos and learn basic techniques for shooting great photos. You’ll learn about image composition, getting the correct exposure, creating unique lighting, light painting, and image processing in Adobe Lightroom. You will be on the move and active in this camp! Studio work and walks around campus with cameras in hand will give you the chance to practice shooting landscapes, florals, food, portraits, motion and action, light painting, and more. You’ll use creativity journals to plan and visualize your final project, use professional studio lighting and backdrops, as well as fiber optic and other light painting tools in this highly interactive camp!

DSLR cameras are recommended, though point-and-shoot or cell-phone cameras will work just fine. Basic processing of photographs from camera to the digital darkroom will also be covered.

Materials fee covers a creativity journal and a USB flash drive. Flash drives will come with instruction files and digital files, and be used to take home edited images.

Please wear comfortable clothes, shoes that are good for walking, and dress for the weather. We’ll be outside a lot!

Before bringing your child to camp, please read through this list. Following these steps will help us assure that your child is safe, healthy, and has tons of fun at camp!
  • Always send your child with a snack and a drink. Food = mood, and we want campers to be at their best! No food is available on campus.
  • Please be sure you have notified us of any behavioral or medical conditions we need to be aware of to help your child have a successful week at camp.
  • Campers need to be signed out every day by the individuals who have been approved by parent or legal guardian to pick them up, and are required to show a photo ID every day.
  • In order to protect the privacy and security of all minors on our campus, photographs by parents and family members in class are not permitted. Instructors and Extension staff often take photos and may share them with campers’ families via email once camp has concluded. Campers’ name tags will be removed for these photographs to respect and protect privacy. Please contact the Extension office directly if you do not want your child to be included in any photographs taken by our staff.
  • Cell phones or hand held games may not be used during camps.
  • Campers are not permitted to use the vending machines during camps.
  • Need help finding your child’s classroom? Campus maps are available here.
