    What kids learn in photography classes

    Posting a photo to Instagram is easy but creating compelling images that endure is not. In photography programs, kids get to dive into a deeper understanding of the techniques and mechanics behind lasting images. These may lead to increased Instagram followers on one hand or it could be a springboard to professional work.

    Composition is one focus of programs. Instructors will discuss framing a photo, and how different elements can affect or improve the effect of a photo.  Kids begin to understand that there is an art to creating excellent images.  

    They’ll learn more about single lens reflex (SLR). Use of SLR opens up a world of opportunities in creating sharper, richer photographs. Kids who’ve never used this type of camera will learn about functions and technical aspects such as aperture, shutter speed, colour balance, and resolution. 

    They’ll learn about different photography specializations. Classes teach or at least introduce students to different kinds of photography including nature photography, portraiture, candids, children, etc.
