I was given the opportunity today to do a little workshop with a couple of the Boys from the Toronto City Mission Summer Camp. They were each given a Nikon Coolpix camera to use for the day and we went over some basics of photography. I explained a little bit about the eye and the camera, went over some basics of light and spoke a bit about what the camera is doing with the iso/aperture/exposure on each of the auto settings. Then I sent them off to capture. After that, I introduced them to Picnik and they got really excited about being able to edit their own pictures. Apparently taking pictures and playing with them, post production is more fun than listening to some guy talk about the exposure triangle. Who knew?
here are a few shots from the day, as well as some of their shots (post production)
What's with the droplets? haha
I can't wait to do this again.
