Our five fabulous campers spent the week immersed in photography. Our focus was to investigate character… our own as photographers, and that of the community. Journaling was incorporated into the experience as a tool for reflection. Day 1 was spent exploring composition and elements of design through a photo scavenger hunt. On Day 2, the campers viewed and discussed the current Silver Eye exhibit, “Self Portrait”. They then created their own self portraits. On Days 3 and 4, we ventured out on foot to capture the character of the South Side and downtown. Campers had the opportunity each day to edit their work on the computer and share it with the group.
