UW-Green Bay Youth Camps

Explorations of Photography

Photography is a versatile medium because there are so many different kinds of photography! In Explorations of Photography, campers will learn 3 different photo processes. First, campers will use a DSLR or a phone camera to learn about fine art digital photography. This includes lighting, shutter speed, and basic photo editing techniques. Second, campers will create a cyanotype using differnt objects to create a photographic blueprint. Last, campers will make and use a pinhole camera.

PLEASE NOTE:  This workshop does not include darkroom work.  Please provide your own digital or phone camera and removable memory card.

Resident campers check-in on Sunday, June 17th. Commuter campers check-in on Monday, June 18th.
