With the guidance of a professional working photographer, campers create a themed portfolio of original digital photographs for presentation at the showcase and to take home with them. Campers learn everything from how to use state of the art digital cameras and editing software, to framing, finding or creating unique backgrounds, and creating powerful works of art with a message for the world. All equipment provided.
