Photoh is now offering its Teen Photography Course in Melbourne, for children between the ages of 12 to 18. Your child will spend three hours with a professional photographer, who will show them the ropes to get them started on their very first photography portfolio.
Not only will they learn how to use their camera, the course will also teach children the basic concepts and principles of photography: focal length, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, lighting and exposure. There's enough knowledge imparted in this course to satisfy even the most curious of minds.
But practice trumps theory any day of the week; this course is designed to maximise the hands-on experience. Make sure your child is dressed comfortably, because they'll be spending most of their time outdoors in the Botanical Gardens with their camera, practicing their new skills.
Don't worry if you don't own a DSLR camera, or one with manual controls. You can bring whatever camera you have at home - you'll find even a smartphone can take amazing shots once you've learned how to use its various functions. Remember to bring spare memory cards and fully charged batteries with you on the day.
This course is a great way to keep your child having fun and learning a new skill all at once. To nurture and develop their creative abilities, sign up for a Photoh course today.
You can book via the Photoh website and select the session you'd like to participate in, or call the Photoh team on 1300 21 11 21.
