This year was the first annual Photography Kids Camp held by the Professional Photographers of East Tennessee and everyone at f/32 Photo was thrilled to be a part of it!
The camp was split into two age groups and were taught camera basics, lighting, and composition by Colby McLemore and Jerry Godolphin, both renowned photographers and excellent teachers! Julie Poole, highly sought after advertising photographer in the equestrian and dog show world, taught a fun lesson on pet photography with her own whippet, Cinnamon, as the perfect model! Fleetwood Photo supplied each camper with a spiral notebook for notes. The camp was featured on WBIR’s Live at 5 at 4:00 with our special guest teacher, Erin Donovon, who spoke about the color of light, design aspects, and what makes a good print. Carla Hoskins, another award winning photographer, did a fantastic job organizing this event!
After a lunch break, the kids got to participate in their own Photo Safari, where they were allowed to submit images to the 8×10 Print Competition. The campers had the run of the area and were challenged to capture images that fit into one of five categories: Portrait, Pet, Architecture, Macro, or Creative. We were all thoroughly impressed and humbled by the work that was produced by all of these future photographers!
