Photo Fundamentals Kids Photo Course
TELL ME ABOUT THE PHOTO FUNDAMENTALS ONLINE PHOTO COURSE ...
The course has been specifically designed children who have an interest in photography and access to a camera. They are at the stage where they want to learn how to take better photos and explore their creative side. Having worked with children in local schools and community organisations, Catriona has been able to tailor the content based on feedback and research she has carried out. The content is a mix of educational videos, with prompts for the child to engage in practical exercises too that they will love. Aimed at developing their skills and expanding their knowledge of photography. Students can watch at a time that suits them, at their own pace of learning. Primarily aimed at children from the age of 7 to 11 upwards.
WHAT ABOUT THE FOCUS FINDERS COURSE - HOW IS IT DIFFERENT?
The course is aimed at children who are slightly older and are possibly thinking of studying photography at GCSE. The content is a little more advanced that the Photo Fundamentals course but we cover a recap of the exposure settings as well. We explore light painting at night, how to take dreamy waterfall images and learn how to focus properly with their camera. There are advanced composition tips plus useful guidance on how to cover their images to black and white. Again, the content is a mix of educational videos, with prompts for the child to engage in practical exercises too that they will love. Aimed at developing their skills and expanding their knowledge of photography. Depending on your child's knowledge levels, pace of learning and understanding, younger children may benefit from this course as well. It varies from person to person.
WHAT TYPE OF CAMERA IS NEEDED TO TAKE PART?
The content is tailored towards using either an SLR camera, a mirrorless camera or a Bridge camera. SLR & Mirrorless cameras are the ones with interchangeable lens. Bridge cameras have a fixed lens but allow you to adjust certain exposure settings.
WHO ARE THE ONLINE COURSES SUITABLE FOR?
The courses are suitable for children aged between 7 and 11+, who have an interest in photography. They don't need any prior experience but maybe have shown a creative flair. This could be the beginning of a new hobby or maybe they want to develop existing skills
HOW LONG ARE THE COURSES?
The courses have a range of learning modules and we normally recommend pacing this over 6-8 weeks. However, if your child prefers to move through the classes more quickly, that's totally fine. The important thing is to watch, learn and then PRACTICE!
HOW CAN THEY TRACK THEIR PROGRESS?
There are quizzes at the end of each section and a certificate is awarded on completion of the course, once they achieve the pass mark.
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE END OF THE WORKSHOP?
On completion, children are provided with a Certificate to acknowledge their hard work and achievements. I also encourage them to stay in touch and let us know how they are progressing.
