The Photography Camps offered at Centauri provides an
opportunity to develop technique and explore creativity. Photography
programs include digital manipulation, and our department has recently
expanded to include graphic/design arts and animation.
Also check out our Fine Arts Camps here!
At Centauri, campers choose one specialty arts program per session. To see a chart listing all the programs and their sessions click here.
In this program, we'll learn how to take better photographs, then manipulate them in the computer lab to produce varied and original works of art. Begin by mastering all the functions on your camera, and explore the aesthetics of photography by looking at the work of well know photographers. Discover the art of landscape, portrait and object photography, and learn how to use lighting to create mood and atmosphere. Back in the computer lab, we'll brush up our photo editing skills, manipulate photos to create exciting works of art and use our images as raw material for digital collages. Next, we'll move on to creating animated gifs, literally bringing our photographs to life. In a final exciting project, we will take elements of performance – both film and live theatre – and use them as inspiration for a stop motion animation project. Push boundaries and challenge concepts as you take your knowledge of photography to the next level. Please bring along a digital camera and a USB flash drive on which to record your work.
