Mobile Photography for Kids.... how to be a visual explorer
These workshops are primarily aimed at inquisitive 6-12 year olds, but kids of any age can take great photos. Kids have an amazing eye for the simple and pure, something we lose too easily as we get older.
As American photographer Walker Evans said "It's the way to educate your eyes".
It always fascinates me when my 9 year old picks up a camera or iPhone and documents his day. He sees things that I never could and shares new stories about the world from his perspective.
It's a visual lesson in storytelling and his perspective is captured forever.
Over the 3 hours we will learn basic iPhone mobile photography tips and tricks, familiarise ourselves with the latest apps then head off on a photo walk. What happens then is only limited by our imaginations!
The workshops will be held in some of Sydney's most iconic and beautiful places like Centennial Parklands and the Royal Botanic Gardens.
After the walk and a quick snack, we'll have a look at each other's photographs, practice some basic editing and upload our favourites to Instagram.
Places for the workshops are limited to 4 so get in quickly!
