Photography Courses for Kids and Teens

Testimonials

  •  I just wanted to thank you for the inspiring afternoon that Milly spent with you yesterday. She had the most fantastic time and couldn’t wait to share what you had taught her. She is looking forward to coming on another course and trying out some of the settings and techniques you have shown her over the Easter break. Many, many thanks and warmest regards.

  • Both my children have benefited from Lillie’s teaching, both through after school club sessions and independently run photography courses. Lillie has introduced them to a wide range of techniques, affording them enough confidence as photographers to contribute on a well known photography web site…

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” – Elliott Erwitt

Elliot Erwitt will be the inspiration of today’s photography class for teens. We will look at his playful and witty street photographs and discuss how they inspire us to make our own. We will go over camera mechanics and settings, discussing how aperture, shutter speed and ISO will influence our images. Our students will photograph in colour and black and white, defining their eye for a interesting image, whilst keeping Erwitt’s playful nature in mind.

Light is principal in photography, and we will teach our students how to capture it using different methods with their cameras. They will learn about exposure, and how aperture, shutter speed and ISO work together to control the light in the image. We will work with over and underexposing to lighten and darken their images, along with using aperture and shutter speed to influence their subject matter in their images.  Our students will finish the morning with a great set of images recording the light on the streets of London and along the Thames river.

Time: 10:30-13.00pm
Ages: 12-15
Fee: £49 (Optional D-SLR camera hire available for £10)

There is so much to photograph along the Thames river, from the wildlife, the boats, the buildings bordering it and the people who stop to admire it. Today’s class will be focused on capturing the life around the river. Our students will learn how to use aperture to make their landscapes, buildings and street photographs sharp, and shutter speed to record the birds in flight, and the movement of the water. We will look at famous photographer’s work to learn more about composition, and encourage our students to think about their own compositions as they look through their viewfinders.

Course: The Decisive Moment
Date: Saturday 28th July 2018
Time: 10:30-13.00pm
Ages: 12-15
Fee: £49 (Optional D-SLR camera hire available for £10)

Knowing when to click the shutter button can completely change an image. We will be using the famous images of Henri Cartier-Bresson as inspiration for today’s class, and learning how to step back and weigh up a scene before clicking away. Our students will learn how to slow their shutter speed down to create a layer of motion in their street images, and how aperture can draw attention to their subjects through using depth of field creatively. Students will be encouraged to photograph in the black and white setting to see the difference in tones, light and detail.
