Last week our group of 9 students at Photography camp explored the Eastern Shore!
The camp has been learning about all of the fundamentals of photography and moving their camera off of the automatic setting. The students have learned about exposure, depth of field, rule of thirds, and much more. Each of the campers came together from across the East Coast but had one thing in common when they arrived, photography. Leaving as friends and more experienced photographers i wouldn't be surprised if these campers became well known names in the world of photography some day!
We took trips to the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, The Chincoteague Bay on our research vessels, Savage Neck Dunes, Kiptopeake State Park, Wallops Island For a sunrise shoot, Saxis, and even made a stop in Onancock.
"This week at photography camp, I have learned about all of the settings on my camera and when to use them. I have also learned about the beauty of nature and why we must protect it. Another thing I have learned at camp is how to make my own website. Photography is about capturing the moment before it leaves, which could be in an instant. I have really enjoyed photography camp this week and I have learned lots of things about photography and nature."
-John, A Photography Camper.
Below are the best photos each camper took at camp this week! They developed their own websites so that they can show their work to everyone! Enjoy!
