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…

Angles and Perspectives

Venue: Archbishops Park, Central London

Date: Saturday 2nd March 2019

Time: 10:30 – 13:00

Ages: 12-15

Fee: £45 (Optional additional £10 DSLR camera hire)

Today’s class is focused on photographic composition, and capturing everyday objects and scenes from a new perspective. Our students will learn how changing where they take a photograph can drastically alter their images. Together we’ll discover how photographing from above, from the hip, or from the ground can make an everyday scene or object look new. We’ll discuss timings, and how often “waiting” for an image can make it even better, enhancing our student’s “looking” skills to capture great images that appear in their viewfinders. We’ll go over camera mechanics, helping our students to understand how aperture can assist in showing a new perspective in their images and how shutter speed can help them to show motion and time in their images. Our students will finish the class with many great ways to capture the world around them, and the images to show them too!
