It's Back to School for Samy's Camera Photo Camp

October 20, 2015  |  by Deborah Cloyed
Created in 2009, Samy’s Camera Photo Camp has taught thousands of students across Los Angeles.  The afterschool course teaches fundamental concepts within different fields of photography, culminating in a gallery show of the students’ work. Photo Camp Our after school program at Samy's Camera Photo Camp is back in full swing after summer break. In the Beginners classes, students received their T-shirts and hats, got to know their classmates, and were introduced to class format and camera function.  We discussed ‘what makes a good photo,’ thereby forming a base for our class vocabulary – composition, perspective, lighting, and more.  Outdoors, creative assignments got everybody into the picture taking groove. Photo Camp Advanced students took a pop photo quiz to review, played the Macro Mixing Bowl game, then headed outdoors to brush up on their Sports Photography skills - timing, pre-focus, and panning. Both classes at Samy's Camera Photo Camp received a syllabus with all the fun ahead.  Food and Macro Photography coming up for Beginners.  Color gels, art filters, and black & white photography on the horizon for Advanced students.
